The report indicates that one of the aircraft's 13 passenger oxygen system cylinders failed and that while the fuselage and some flight systems sustained damage, the aircraft continued to operate safely and landed in Manila without further incident.

The Chief Executive Officer of Qantas, Mr Geoff Dixon, said the preliminary report was a factual account of the incident and investigation to date.

"Our own investigations agree with the ATSB's preliminary conclusions," Mr Dixon said.

"We will continue to assist the ATSB to ensure that factors that may have contributed to the incident are understood and that any corrective actions ultimately identified are implemented."

Mr Dixon said Qantas had completed an inspection of the oxygen systems across its B747-400 fleet on 1 August, which confirmed there were no safety issues.

He also said the B747-400 involved in the Manila accident was repairable at a cost of less than $10 million and would be back in service in November 2008.

"Preparations for these repairs are underway, with the work to be carried out in Manila by Lufthansa Technik in consultation with Boeing and Qantas engineers."

Mr Dixon said despite the seriousness of the QF30 incident, Qantas' remained proud of its excellent safety reputation.
