Unscheduled landing for Air NZ flight

It's due to premature corrosion and wear and tear of the fan blades in the turbine of Rolls Royce 787-9 engines

The engine issues both happened on Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes flying out of Auckland bound for worldwide destinations.

Under their joint venture alliance established in January 2015, both airlines will continue to operate one daily return services each on the Singapore-Auckland route, with a third service operated by SIA during the winter season and by Air New Zealand in the summer season.

Transport Accident Investigation Commission (TAIC) chief commissioner Jane Meares said the commission has opened inquiries into both events.

"Rolls-Royce has advised that some of the Trent 1000 engines in the airline's Boeing 787-9 fleet require maintenance sooner than previously indicated", Air New Zealand said in a statement.

Tan Kai Ping, Singapore Airlines' senior vice president, marketing planning, said: "Our alliance with Air New Zealand has already benefited customers through more capacity, choice, improved connections and more codeshare destinations".


Customers affected by these changes will be proactively contacted with new travel information.

An investigation is underway after two Air NZ Dreamliner airplanes experienced engine abnormalities this week.

TAIC is working closely with the airline, Civil Aviation Authority and engine-manufacturer Rolls Royce.

Photographs reveal the damage to one of the engines of an Air New Zealand 787 aircraft. The problem was thought to relate to blades in the turbine corroding far earlier than expected, resulting in the engines being shut down. "At the company's half-year results in August it warned investors to 'expect increased activity in second half related to Trent 1000 maintenance programme to address a number of technical issues", the paper said.

The Air New Zealand incidents have been reported worldwide, including on the BBC and by global agency Reuters.
