SINGAPORE: There is a need to return a scoot flight between Singapore and Gold Coast with 341 passengers to return to Changi Airport on Wednesday morning (January 30).
The flight TR6, starting at 10.20 pm, will begin at 10.35 a.m. on Tuesday, with the exterior damage to the front of the aircraft.
The plane flew three hours into flight as a safety measure, Scoot said in a statement.
There was no air leak or pressure on the booth, a budget company was added.
An alternate plane and a new set of crews were organized to return to Singapore.
The original plane returned to the Changi airport at 4.45 a day, Scoot said. The replacement plane came out at Singapore at 6:56 a.m.
Due to the delay in the TR6, the return flight from Gold Coast to Singapore, TR7, was postponed on Wednesday from 9:20 AM to 5:20 PM.
With Singapore's Scoot or airline partners joining Singapore Airlines, SilkAir and Virgin Australia, they will be transferred to the next available flights.
In the notification, Scoot has said that the cause of wind damage is under investigation.
"We regret the abuse of our customers' travel plans," said the airline.
On Wednesday, Twitter user Karina Isaza tweeted her plane to several Australian news outlets.
"So, staff and crew get it safely, thankfully," he wrote.
