SINGAPORE — Qantas said one of its planes had safely made an emergency landing in Singapore after one of the aircraft's engines shut down while flying over Indonesia.

A Qantas spokesman in Sydney, Australia, said the A380 aircraft experienced an engine issue soon after taking off from Singapore on a flight to Sydney. The plane had 433 passengers and 26 crew on board.

Qantas spokeswoman Emma Kearns said one of four engines on the plane flying from Singapore to Sydney shut down. Kearns said the plane can safely fly on three engines, but the pilot landed the plane in Singapore to be safe.
