European aircraft manufacturer Airbus Thursday confirmed an engine failure in one of its super jumbo A380 jets owned by Qantas Airways (QAN.AU) and said it will collaborate with the investigations of authorities in France and Australia.

The jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Singapore, minutes after taking off as one of its engines failed.

"A team of specialists from Airbus is being dispatched to Singapore," Airbus said in a statement.

"Airbus will make further factual information available as soon as the details have been confirmed," the statement said.

Airbus is a wholly-owned division of European Aeronautic Defence & Space Co NV (EAD.FR).

Rolls Royce PLC (RR.LN) manufactures the Trent 900 engines of the A380.

Shares of EADS were 4.1% down Thursday at 1410 GMT, hours after reports of the incidents were published.
