Singapore Airlines recently announced on its website that
they have grounded 3 Singapore Airlines A380 aircraft for precautionary checks
following the findings by Qantas into the Qantas A380 Engine incident which occurred
Singapore Airlines Initially grounded its entire Airbus A380
fleet following the Qantas A380 engine incident, however the airline was quick
to put their fleet back into service.
It is not yet known if Singapore Airlines will ground its remaining
A380 aircraft, however considering the airline has only grounded three of its
A380 aircraft there must be some evidence from the Qantas & Rolls Royce
Investigation linking the Singapore Airlines aircraft with the Qantas A380 that
experienced the engine issue.
The message to passengers and visitors of its website reads
“Based on further
analysis of inspection findings as the investigation into last week’s incident
involving another operator’s Airbus A380 is progressing, Singapore Airlines
will be carrying out precautionary engine changes on three A380s.
We apologise to our customers for flight disruptions that may result and we
seek their understanding.”
