Singapore Airlines probe into Airbus power loss

Singapore Airlines has begun an investigation after one of its aircraft reportedly lost power, causing it to fall 13,000 feet.

The Airbus A330-300, with 182 passengers and 12 crew on board, suffered a power loss to both engines while travelling to Shanghai, Sky News reported.

The flight on May 23 “encountered bad weather at 39,000 feet about three and a half hours after departure” from Singapore, a statement from the airline said.

“Both engines experienced a temporary loss of power and the pilots followed operational procedures to restore normal operation of the engines. The flight continued to Shanghai and touched down uneventfully.”

A spokesman for the airline said the engines were inspected on arrival with “no anomalies detected”.
