SINGAPORE: A Singapore Airlines (SIA) plane flying from London to Singapore made an emergency landing in Azerbaijan on Monday.
There were no injuries to the 467 passengers and 27 crew members on board SQ317, an Airbus A380.
According to a post on the Singapore Airlines Facebook page, the flight was diverted due to depressurisation, and oxygen masks were deployed.
The statement said the aircraft landed "uneventfully" at Baku Airport at 1.03am, local time.
Singapore Airlines said it is seeking clearance from local authorities to transfer affected customers to a hotel until a replacement aircraft arrives from Singapore.
In a statement posted on its Facebook site at 1100 GMT, the carrier said a replacement aircraft had left Singapore and was due to arrive in Baku at around 1900 GMT on Monday.
It is expected to land in Singapore on Tuesday afternoon.
"We sincerely apologise to affected customers for the inconvenience caused by the diversion and the lengthy delay encountered at the airport in Baku," the airline said.
Airbus said in a statement it was "following up on this issue and providing technical assistance to the airline".
SIA said customers can contact the airline's Reservation and Ticketing Office in Singapore at +65 6223 8888 for assistance.
