Over the weekend, Singapore Airlines Flight SQ836, flying from Singapore to Shanghai, lost power mid-flight on both of its Rolls-Royce engines.
According to Flightradar 24, the Airbus A330-343 experienced the problem while cruising at 39,000 feet.
The incident, which took place just south of Hong Kong, caused the airliner to descend 13,000 feet before the crew was able to restart the engines.
The Airbus jet — registration number 9V-SSF — landed safely in Shanghai an hour and a half later. There were 182 passengers and 12 crew members on board the airliner. No injuries were reported.
According to The Aviation Herald, Singapore Airlines confirmed that the A330 “experienced a temporary loss of power” after encountering some bad weather.
Once on the ground in Shanghai, the two-month-old airliner underwent a batch of tests, but a cause for the power loss couldn’t be determined, The Aviation Herald reported.
Singapore’s Air Accident Investigations Bureau is looking into the incident.
