Jetstar makes emergency landing in Bali - Breaking News - National - Breaking News

A Jetstar flight from Bangkok to Melbourne has been forced to make an unscheduled landing at Bali's Denpasar Airport.
A Jetstar staff member said the flight left Bangkok on Sunday night and had been due to arrive at Melbourne Airport at 9am (AEST) on Monday, but was instead diverted to Denpasar.
Fairfax media has reported that the captain of flight JQ30 was forced to make an emergency landing at Denpasar after shutting down one engine as a precautionary measure after a fault was found.
The plane landed about 6.45am (AEST) and all 302 passengers and 12 crew were still on board as of 8.30am, the Fairfax online report said.

I heard this was the NEW A330 (VH-EBE), only entering service about 3 weeks ago.

This information is for passengers who were scheduled to depart Bangkok for Melbourne on Jetstar and Code share flights on the 22nd of July, flight JQ30 departing at 2100 (9:00pm local time).
We regret to advise that the flight departing from Bangkok has been diverted to Denpasar (Bali). There is no greater priority than safety and security at Jetstar.
At this time, we anticipate the revised departure will be approximately 1915 (7:15pm local time) on JQ30 Wednesday 23rd of July. This flight is due to arrive into Melbourne on Thursday the 24th of July at 0235 (02:35am local time). We will keep this site updated as further information comes to hand.
If you had an onward connection to either a Jetstar or Qantas flight, we should have your details and have organised for these connections to be changed. More details of these new flight connections will be given to you at the airport. There may be occasion where we do not know your on-carriage. Please advise Bali Ground Staff to enable us to rebook your on-carriage whilst inflight to Melbourne. On arrival, Melbourne Ground Staff will confirm your on-carriage flight details.
Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact our 24 hour call centre (Toll free numbers are listed under �Contact us� on the website.

They arent having a particularly good run are they?
Jetstar just gets a huge amount of media attention, and has issues (mainly) because of their stretched fleet (rather than their safety record)

If every plane mishap in the world was reported, then the newspapers would probably grow to double their normal size...

I wasnt meaning to sound overly critical - I agree they get an unfair amount of press but they are not having proportionately to their fleet a particularly good run.

This information is for passengers who were scheduled to depart Kansai for Brisbane on Jetstar and Code share flights on the 23rd of July, flight JQ18 departing at 2155 (9:55pm local time).
We regret to advise that the flight departing from Kansai has been cancelled due to operational issues that have impacted our network within the last 24hours. There is no greater priority than safety and security at Jetstar.
Passengers travelling on this service that have not been contacted by Jetstar or require any further information should give our 24hour call centre a call (Toll free numbers are listed under �Contact us� on the website).
We do apologise for any inconvenience.

Anyone supposed to be on this cancelled flight? This would have been one of the take-a-friend for $3 flights, I think.

I agree, they are the media's favourite whipping boy at the moment. I mean when Virgin had their near miss a while (pretty damn serious) it barely got touched..
