AirAsia flight forced to return to Perth

The Air Asia flight was bound for Kuala Lumpur

An AirAsia flight has been forced to turn back to Perth after suffering an engine failure mid flight.

An AirAsia flight to Kuala Lumpur with hundreds of passengers onboard was forced to return to an Australian airport after a technical issue caused it to shake violently.

The passengers on the plane were transferred to another flight, which took off "safely" at 11:40 p.m. on Sunday, AirAsia X Berhad said.

"Other guests will be informed of the progress of the flight".

AirAsia X in a statement on Sunday confirmed that the flight "landed safely" at 10am (Perth time), about three hours after it departed with 359 passengers on board.

"The safety of our guests is our utmost priority", the statement said.

It returned to Perth airport shortly after take-off due to a "technical issue".

The news agency noted that this was the second scare involving an Airbus A330 in Australia this month, with a China Eastern plane making an emergency landing in Sydney after a huge hole appeared in one of its engine casings. They remained in a bracing position while the plane landed, which was reportedly smooth. But somehow two passengers, Mitch and Damos, managed to make light of the ordeal, taking video of themselves shaking on the flight.

"There was sort of a bang, and you could see the cabin crew were startled, and then a shudder started straight away, and I had a sense the plane was turning around", he told ABC.

"It was literally like you were sitting on top of a washing machine", he told ABCradio. The whole thing was going.

He said the pilot asked passengers to pray twice. We could see the engine out the window, which was really shaking on the wing.

Dave Parry told ABC that passengers were told to brace for impact on landing.
