An Air Asia flight that departed Perth, Western Australia bound for Bali on Sunday, October 15, 2017, was forced to make an emergency return to Perth just 25 minutes into the flight.

 
When cockpit instruments on Air Asia’s QZ535 showed a loss of cabin pressure, the pilot took the precautionary steps of making a rapid descent to 10,000 feet above sea level and deploying oxygen masks in the passenger cabin.
 
The Airbus A320 was carrying 151 passengers when the incident occurred.
 
Kompas.com reports that the management of Air Asia announced the aircraft had encountered a technical problem compelling the flight to return to Perth.
 
A passenger appearing on the local Nine Network TV broadcast said that passengers on the flight had all said farewell to each other in what was a terrifying experience.
 
Video recorded in the cabin and later posted on social media showed the emergency oxygen masks hanging from the passenger cabin ceiling with crew repeatedly shouting, “passengers get down.”
 
Claire Askew, a passenger on the flight, told Seven Network that panic among the passengers grew when crewmembers began shouting and crying.
 
Air Asia issued an official statement stating: "following a technical issue to ensure the safety of passengers. We commend our pilots for landing the aircraft safely and complying with standard operating procedure. We are fully committed to the safety of our guests and crew and we will continue to ensure that we adhere to the highest safety standards"
 
The airline expressed its regret for any inconvenience and discomfort caused to passengers because of the incident. Passengers were assisted on their return to Perth in booking another flight to Bali.
 
In June of 2017, an Air Asia flight from Perth to Bali also made an unscheduled return to Perth when the aircraft reportedly began to shake “like a washing machine.”
 
In December of 2014, an Air Asia flight from Surabaya to Singapore crashed into the Java Sea killing 162 passengers and crew.
