Singapore Airlines flight grounded after sudden drop in cabin pressure

Melbourne, Jan. 07 : A Singapore Airlines plane has been forced to make an emergency landing in Azerbaijan, after cabin pressure dropped suddenly.


None of the 467 passengers and 27 crew members on board the Airbus A380 superjumbo jet was injured as oxygen masks were deployed without delay, News.com.au reports.

However, it was still not clear what caused the loss of cabin pressure.

The airline was flying from London to Singapore, but was diverted to Baku after the emergency situation arrived.

Meanwhile, the airline officials said that it was seeking clearance from local authorities to transfer the passengers to a hotel until a replacement aircraft arrived from Singapore.
