Flight number EK430 managed to land safely in Brisbane, Australia, after all its passengers got off the plane as scheduled.

The incident happened on Friday, July 1, and in a statement, Emirates spokesperson stated, “Our flight EK430 travelling from Dubai to Brisbane on July 1 encountered a technical fault during the cruise.”

The aeroplane landed safely in Australia’s Brisbane, and all the travellers disembarked as scheduled.

The spokesperson further said that the safety of our crew and passengers has always been their top priority.

The three-year-old aircraft wearing the “Journey to the Future” livery, publicising the new Museum of the Future in Dubai, was not able to depart for its return flight awaiting repair and is still on the ground in Brisbane.

The aircraft will stay in Brisbane for proper assessment and repairs. A report, as per the sources, stated that one of its flight’s tires blew at the time of take-off, and it landed safely in Brisbane with a massive hole on the side of its fuselage because a wheel had exploded in the undercarriage. The aircraft will soon be back in the UAE.
