Tiger plane makes emergency landing after 'strange odour'

A TIGER Airways flight has ended with an emergency landing after reports of an unusual smell on board.

The alarm was raised by the pilot on flight TT511, which was travelling from Brisbane to Melbourne with about 80 passengers this morning.

Fire crews and paramedics met the flight at Melbourne Airport, according to Fairfax Media, at 9.50am local time, with the plane landing at 10.05am.

A Tiger Airways spokeswoman told Fairfax there was an "unusual odour" in the cabin as the plane was coming in to land, although no smoke was visible.

Three cabin crew members and one passengers were assessed by medicos after landing.
