The Federal Aviation Safety Authority (FASA) has issued warnings for flights from Perth and the Gold Coast to Canberra, including flights from Hobart, Adelaide and Adelaide Hills.
The warnings were issued after a “potentially dangerous” flight from Canberra to Perth was reported to the FASA on May 26, according to the airline.
“The FASC advises that the risk of a serious accident, or any other injury, is high when flying in or near Perth,” the airline said in a statement.
“Therefore, it is recommended that passengers should travel to a location which is not currently considered to be a safe place to travel.”
The warnings came after reports of a possible crash in Sydney and another crash near Melbourne.
In a statement, the FasA said it had been contacted by the airline and the safety authorities in each city concerned.”FASC has confirmed that a flight was in Sydney to Melbourne that was reported as missing on the way from Sydney to Perth, but it is unclear at this stage whether this is a crash, or a flight with multiple crewmembers on board,” the statement said.
The Australian Maritime Safety Authority said it was also aware of the flight, which was not travelling between Sydney and Perth.
“The AMSA is aware of a flight reported missing in Melbourne, but the flight was not reported missing, and no injuries have been reported,” the agency said.
A flight from Melbourne to Perth had been reported missing by ATSAA and FASBThe ATSC is aware that flight ALH 9051 from Melbourne Airport to Perth has been reported as lost and is not a registered flight for the Aussie Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB),” it said.”AASB is aware there are a number of passengers on board the flight.
“The ATC has advised passengers should not travel to areas where there are reported to be potential crash sites.”
These areas are very remote and difficult to access,” it said in the statement.
“Fingerprinting should not be carried out at these sites as this could compromise a person’s identity.
“Passengers should only travel to places where the FTSB recommends that people not travel.”
The airline said there had been no reports of any fatalities.
