Singapore Airlines finds no problems with Airbus A380 engines

42262.jpegSingapore Airlines said on Monday it had completed engine inspections on all its Airbus A380 aircraft and did not find any issues of concern.

One of the Rolls Royce engines on a Qantas Airways A380 broke apart in flight last week, forcing the world's largest passenger plane to make an emergency landing in Singapore with 459 passengers and crew on board.

Australia's Qantas said on Monday it would keep its A380 fleet grounded for at least another 72 hours after discovering problems on three more of the superjumbo's engines, Reuters informs.

Singapore Airlines said Monday its inspections of its 11 A380 superjumbos had found no problems with their Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines, as it continues flying the planes.

In Sydney, Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce said rigorous testing had uncovered the anomalies on the Rolls-Royce engines on three separate aircraft, pushing back the return to action of the long-haul planes by 72 hours.

"The oil leaks were beyond normal tolerances," Joyce told journalists. "All of these engines are new engines. "At this stage, Qantas does not expect to operate the A380 fleet for at least another 72 hours," Sydney Morning Herald reports.
