A Singapore Airlines Airbus A350-900, registration 9V-SMC performing flight SQ-323 from Amsterdam (Netherlands) to Singapore (Singapore), was descending towards Singapore, when the crew requested a tow to be ready for landing advising they would not be able to vacate the runway. The aircraft landed on Singapore's runway 20C, braked firmly and came to a stop about 2100 meters down the runway, but was unable to vacate the runway. The aircraft was towed to the apron about 20 minutes later. In the meantime all landing traffic was using runway 20R.

A passenger reported the captain announced after the aircraft came to a stop that they had suffered a hydraulic failure, were unable to vacate the runway and needed to be towed off the runway. The flaps remained extended, a number of spoilers also remained extended while others retracted. After arriving at the stand maintenance engineers were working on the right hand engine (Trent XWB), it appeared there may have been an oil leak.
