An Airbus A380 Singapore Airlines has an emergency landing at Baku airport
An Airbus A380 operated by Singapore Airlines has landed emergency at Baku airport, after the cabin was depressurized. The aircraft operated a flight on the London - Singapore route and had 467 passengers and 27 crew members on board. The SQ317 flight departed from London Airport and was to arrive at Changi's Singapore Airlines base.
Depressurization caused the oxygen masks to descend immediately, and the pilots took the aircraft to the ground and safely to the airport in the capital of Azerbaijan.
It appears that the problem occurred at one of the front doors of the aircraft just after takeoff. A witness stated that a loud noise was heard from the front door and a very cold air came into the cabin. All's well that ends well. There were no injured persons, and all the passengers were transferred to a hotel while waiting for an aircraft to take them to their destination.
