A Brussels Airlines Airbus A330-200, registration OO-SFY performing flight SN-465 from Entebbe (Uganda) to Brussels (Belgium), was climbing out of Entebbe about 20 minutes into the flight when the right hand engine (PW4168) emitted a series of bangs and streaks of flames (usually indicative of engine compressor stalls or surges) prompting the crew to shut the engine down and return to Entebbe for a safe landing about 40 minutes after departure.

The airline confirmed the aircraft returned to Entebbe due to engine compressor stalls.

The engine is to be replaced, the incident aircraft is currently still in Entebbe (standing May 16th 21:00Z) causing disruptions to the flight schedule of Brussels Airlines.
