Jetstar flight making an emergency landing at Mildura

A Jetstar flight is making an emergency landing at Mildura around 0115 UTC.

Cause is given as smoke in the cabin.

I heard about this from rural ambulance VHF.

Why not Broken Hill for an emergency landing? closer than Mildura.
Not a criticism; but just asking the obvious question

Because one has regular infrastructure for RPT Jet traffic and one doesn’t.

Also, elapsed time for descent wise, Mildura was probably the better choice.

I see the scum at NEWS have a headline "Aircraft Accident" - they really are the bottom of the gene pool when it comes to so-called journalism. Absolutely ZERO morals or concern for someone who might stumble across their webpage who has a friend relative on the flight...

Its a fair question to be sure. The crew are the only ones to have all the facts and take what they consider is the best option.

Not sure if it is still the case, there used to be a set of A320 stairs and a tow bar at MQL owned by NZ in case they had to divert their AKL-ADL flight.

On board fire is “ land at nearest available airport.” Its as bad as it gets. Stairs , maintenance etc. have nothing to do with it.

So was it a fire warning or actual smoke?

It is worth pointing out that there would be a heap of airlines flying with very distracted crews at the moment - these are unprecedented times that are going to put significant strain on a lot of pilots and their families.

So kudos to the two up the front who appear to have handled this very well - external distractions and all.

We must all strive to remain focussed at the job at hand - if you’ve got too much going on, make a phone call and talk to someone, and if need be use some personal leave.

Most importantly, look after your colleagues. The person sitting next to you might just have to get something off their chest - that might be enough to make a world of difference.

Take care everyone - and again, well done to the crew involved here.
