SINGAPORE  — A Qantas Boeing 747 with 431 people on board landed safely in Singapore late Friday after reporting an engine problem shortly after takeoff, the airline said.

The problem arose just a day after a Qantas Airbus A380 superjumbo jet made an emergency landing at the same airport due to an engine blowout.

Flight QF6 from Singapore to Sydney had an issue with its number 1 engine — one of four — but the problem on the Boeing plane wasn't immediately specified. The airline indicated it wasn't a serious problem and the same plane was being used when the flight departs later Friday.
