Summary

The ATSB is investigating an engine malfunction and in-flight shut down involving an Airbus A330, 9M-MTM, near Curtin, Western Australia on 18 January 2018. 

During cruise, the crew detected a malfunction with the left engine and elected to shut it down. They then diverted the aircraft to Alice Springs where an uneventful single-engine landing was conducted.

As part of the investigation, the ATSB will obtain information from the flight crew, engineering reports and recorded data and gather additional information as required.

A final report will be released at the end of the investigation.

Should a critical safety issue be identified during the course of the investigation, the ATSB will immediately notify those affected and seek safety action to address the issue.
