Malaysia Airlines Flight MH148, traveling from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur, made an emergency landing Friday at Melbourne's Tullamarine Airport due to a suspected engine fire, the Associated Press (AP) reported, citing an official.

The twin-engine Airbus A330 jet appeared to circle the airport a number of times soon after take-off and before landing, Australian media reported. Airport spokeswoman Anna Gillett reportedly said that the passenger jet landed without incident or injury, but did not confirm if the incident was related to an engine fire.

Fire engines were reportedly at the scene, according to BBC. Gillett reportedly confirmed that the jet had dumped fuel before making the emergency landing. It's not yet clear how many people were on board but a Malaysia Airlines A330 jet on this route can potentially seat about 283 people, according to a travel website.

"The pilot called an emergency landing and as standard procedure when a pilot calls any sort of emergency landing, emergency personnel are currently on site,” Gillett said shortly after the landing, according to AP.

The troubled airline company lost two of its passenger jets in disasters last year.

In March 2014, Flight MH370, which was travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, went missing and is yet to be found. In July, Flight MH17, which was traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur with 298 people, was shot down in an area of eastern Ukraine held by pro-Russian separatists, killing all on board.
