An air safety investigation's been launched in Australia after a Qantas jet made its approach to land at the country's busiest airport without its landing gear down.

The airline has stood down the two pilots pending the investigation's outcome, the ABC reports.

The incident happened during flight from Melbourne to Sydney on Monday last week.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau will interview the pilots.
