Germany's Lufthansa airline said Monday that it would continue to fying its three Airbus A380 jets, following checks on the engines according to recommendations by manufacturer Rolls- Royce, DPA reported.
A spokesman in Frankfurt said nothing untoward was found in the checks. Lufthansa is set to begin commercial operations by a fourth superjumbo on November 19. It has ordered 15 of the planes in all.
Singapore Airlines says it too will continue to fly the A380.
Both responded just a few hours after Australia's Qantas Airways said it found oil leaks on three Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines and would keep its fleet of six A380s grounded. The jets are the world's largest passenger planes.
