One of four engines on aCathay Pacific AirwaysBoeing 747-400 aircraft was shut down before it landed at Amsterdam on 27 June after its flight crew detected a problem with the engine.

The flight from Hong Kong landed safely at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, says Cathay, which has informed Hong Kong’s Civil Aviation Department about the incident.

Cathay’s flight crew detected a problem with the 747’s no. 3 engine about 50 minutes before the aircraft was scheduled to land at Amsterdam and “shut down the relevant engine as a precautionary measure”, says the Oneworld carrier.

“At no time was the safety of the 377 passengers onboard in question,” it adds.

The aircraft’s engine was changed, after Cathay flew six engineers and a replacement engine to Amsterdam on 28 June.

As a result, passengers scheduled to travel on the aircraft from Amsterdam to Hong Kong on 27 June had to be accommodated on other airlines, says Cathay.
