Bombardier DHC-8-402 Dash 8, G-JECH


During the initial descent prior to landing at Brussels Airport, the aircraft’s cabin depressurised due to a split seal on the aft baggage compartment door. An emergency descent was initiated before the aircraft levelled at FL80, following which the cabin pressurisation system functioned correctly. The crew and passengers were uninjured and the aircraft landed normally.
