Australian transport authorities are investigating yet another issue with an engine on a Dreamliner aircraft.

A Scoot airlines flight was flying between Singapore and Perth when its right engine shut down unexpectedly.

The incident, which happened on Thursday last week, is the latest in a long series of issues with the Rolls-Royce engines being used on Dreamliners around the world.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau has begun an investigation which will include interviewing crew and analysing engineering reports.

Scoot is a low cost airline owned by a subsidiary company of Singapore Airlines.

It has a total of 18 Boeing Dreamliners in its fleet of 48 aircraft.

The report is expected to be completed early next year.
