Hundreds of Emirates passengers have been left stranded around the country after a flight from Dubai to Brisbane was forced to divert to Adelaide with engine trouble.
Ambulances and fire trucks were assembled for the landing about 8.45pm but the Boeing 777-300ER touched down safely.
Emirates was making arrangements to fly the 328 people on board to their intended destination.
As a result of the diversion the scheduled Brisbane-Dubai flight this morning was cancelled, leaving hundreds more passengers wondering when they might get to travel.
An Emirates spokesman said passengers would be rebooked on other flights where possible.
“Emirates apologises for the inconvenience caused,” she said.
“The safety of our passengers and crew is of the utmost importance.” More info
