A Malaysia Airlines Airbus A330-300, registration 9M-MTH performing flight MH-136 from Adelaide,SA (Australia) to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) with 167 people on board, was accelerating for takeoff from Adelaide's runway 05 when tower cancelled the takeoff clearance. The crew rejected takeoff at low speed and stopped the aircraft on the runway.

Tower apologized that a Tiger Airways Airbus A320 on approach had been too high and too fast on approach and went around, tower wanted to make sure the A330 didn't climb underneath the go-around and explained that takeoff clearance occurred when the A320 was about 5nm out, sufficient space for the departure, but was still maintaining 200 knots.

According to radar data a Tiger Airways Airbus A320-200, registration VH-VNC performing flight TT-449 from Melbourne,VI to Adelaide,SA (Australia), was on a 6nm final to runway 05 descending through 2300 feet MSL at 170 knots over ground, the aircraft went around from below 1250 feet MSL. The aircraft landed safely on its second approach to runway 05 about 12 minutes later.

The crew of the A330 decided to return to the holding point of runway 05, departed about 25 minutes after rejecting takeoff and reached Kuala Lumpur with a delay of 10 minutes.
