An Emirates airline flight to Brisbane experienced a technical fault during its cruise, a spokesperson confirmed on Saturday.

“Our flight EK430 flying from Dubai to Brisbane on 1 July experienced a technical fault during the cruise," said an airline spokesperson.

"The aircraft landed safely in Brisbane and all passengers disembarked as scheduled," the spokesperson added

As per earlier media reports, the plane's fuselage got damaged after a wheel exploded in the undercarriage of the aircraft.

Emirates later clarified that the aircraft's fuselage was not impacted.

"One of the aircraft’s 22 tyres ruptured during cruise, causing damage to a small portion of the aerodynamic fairing, which is an outer panel or the skin of the aircraft," said an airline spokesperson. "At no point did it have any impact on the fuselage, frame, or structure of the aircraft."

The aircraft's fairing has been completely replaced, checked, and cleared by engineers, Airbus, and all relevant authorities, said Emirates.

Emirates restarted daily flights to Sydney and four weekly flights to Melbourne in November, following the easing of travel restrictions in Australia.
