Supervisor: explosion hazard Airbus
- The European Aviation Authority EASA warns of a malfunction of Airbus A350-900 aircraft that could explode devices.
Manufacturer Airbus has released a software update that should prevent the problem and investigate whether further measures are necessary and consider considering the design.
According to the EASA, the failure may under certain conditions cause hydraulic fluid to overheat. This could then lead to the burning of fuel into fuel tanks.
Airbus has so far supplied more than 100 devices of the type with the defect. Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific and Qatar Airways use such boxes.
Lufthansa has announced its recommendations and does not expect any further impact on aircraft utilization.
