With terrified passengers in the brace position, the aircraft landed safely at 10am, three hours after it had left.

"Passengers were attended to by our ground staff upon landing and all necessary assistance is being provided", said AirAsia X.

The Malaysian low-priced carrier said only that "flight crew are taking precautionary measures to check the aircraft".

But the aircraft began shaking mid-flight - prompting the crew to turn the plane around roughly 90 minutes in, 24-year-old passenger Brenton Atkinson told Australia's ABC News.

The A330 flight PER-KUL landed safely at Perth International Airport a short time ago. "I'll be saying a prayer too and let's hope we all get back home safely.' It was terrifying".

Sophie Nicolas said the plane started shuddering a lot.

A pilot has turned around an AirAsia flight on its way to Malaysia and returned to Perth due to a technical problem with the plane.

The pilot shook hands with all of the passengers after the flight was over. Most people inside compared it to that of a washing machine. The whole thing was going.

"You could see the engine out the window which was really shaking on the wing".

She would not confirm if the plane's engine was affected, responding only that it was a "technical issue". The experience was so bad the pilot actually called on passengers to pray - not once, but twice.

"A flight turn back is the best option to ensure the passengers safety and no accident happen".
