Rolls-Royce to investigate Singapore emergency landing

May 17 2011

Rolls-Royce has launched an investigation after a plane carrying 136 people had to make an emergency landing in Singapore.

The Cathay Pacific Airbus A330-300 experienced problems in one of its two Rolls-Royce engines shortly after taking off for Jakarta.

The plane landed safely on Monday without injuries.

This is the second emergency landing involving a Rolls-Royce engine in six months.

Last year, Rolls-Royce faced a safety probe after one of the engines in a Qantas Airbus A380 caught fire, forcing an emergency landing.

"Cathay Pacific and Rolls-Royce are investigating the incident which has been reported to the Hong Kong civil aviation department," said a spokesman for Cathay Pacific about the latest incident.
