The Emirates airlines informed that a burning smell was detected from an Emirates flight from Australia to Dubai, following which it was aborted, and the aircraft returned back to Perth.
A spokesman informed, "All passengers on flight EK425 disembarked normally after the plane landed safely and would be rescheduled on another Emirates flight later in the day."
The airbus A340 had appoximately120 passengers.
A statement issued in this regard informed, "The decision to return to Perth was a precautionary measure, one-and-a-half hours into the flight."
The spokesman further added, "Contrary to some media reports, there was no smoke in the cockpit or the cabin of the aircraft. Safety was not compromised at any point. Aircraft engineers were investigating the source of the burning smell. Emergency vehicles and fire crews were alerted, but they did not need to take any action."
