Gold Coast flight sparks emergency response at Sydney airport

A plane heading for the Gold Coast has sparked an emergency response at Sydney airport this morning.

Emergency services were called to the tarmac in Sydney around 11.30pm, after a Jetstar plane reported a problem with a tyre.

It’s understood the plane had taken off from the Sydney runway, and had done a loop before touching back down on the tarmac.


The A320 was then met on the runway, while emergency service crews attended.

At the time of writing, the plane was still being checked over, and what sparked the problem remains unclear.
