Qantas Airways spokesperson Olivia Wirth commented:

“An engine on flight QF64 (Boeing 744) from Johannesburg to Sydney experienced an increase in vibration and temperature this evening shortly after take off at 18:00. In line with procedures, the pilots shut down the engine, and as a safety precaution returned to Johannesburg.

“The aircraft had a normal landing not long afterwards and the passengers disembarked.

“The aircraft has four engines and can safely fly on three engines. We are currently looking at options to get the aircraft back in the air as soon as possible.

“We are focused on looking after our passengers on-board and have provided them with accommodation and meals.

“There was no issue with safety, and media reports that there was an explosion are incorrect.”
