Incident at VANCOUVER INTL BC (CYVR)

A Jazz Bombardier CL-600-2D24 (Series 900) (JZA8626) from Vancouver Intl, BC (CYVR) to Dallas/Fort Worth Intl, TX (KDFW) returned to CYVR due to an air quality issue. Emergency stand-by was initiated. The aircraft exited the runway and taxied to the gate. No operational impact.
Update TSB Report #A19P0024: C-FUJZ, a Bombardier CL-600-2D24 aircraft operated by Jazz Aviation LP, was conducting flight JZA8626 from Vancouver Intl (CYVR), BC to Dallas-Fort Worth Intl (KDFW), TX with 4 crew members and 65 passengers on board. During the climb to cruising altitude after the departure from CYVR, the flight crew noted a petroleum smell in the cabin and the flight deck. Symptoms of light-headedness, headache, tingling, nausea, sore throat, and irritated eyes were also reported by some crew members. The pilots donned their oxygen masks, while the flight attendants used portable oxygen. No emergency was declared, however the aircraft returned to CYVR where it landed without further incident. After the landing, the flight crew taxied the aircraft to the gate, and passengers and crew deplaned normally. Emergency Medical Services met the aircraft, and paramedics assessed all passengers and crew. Affected crew members were transported to hospital for further evaluation. The operator’s maintenance determined that the air contamination was the result of turbine oil entering the number 1 engine compressor section, from the A-sump pump aft seal. The number 1 engine (General Electric CF34-8C5) was replaced.
UPDATE from Airworthiness: A Civil Aviation Safety Inspector (CASI) looked into this occurrence.On departure from Vancouver Intl, BC (CYVR) the flight crew of a Jazz Bombardier CL-600-2D24 (C-FUJZ/JZA8626) on a flight from Vancouver Intl, BC (CYVR) to Dallas/Fort Worth Intl, TX (KDFW) noted a strong, pungent odour. Communication with the Incharge Flight Attendant confirmed that the Passenger cabin was also affected. The air quality was noted as being worse in the Flight Deck. One of the flight crew went through the passenger cabin to better understand the scope of the problem. The back of the cabin had a mild odour with it becoming progressively worse towards the front. The poor air quality affected the crew more than the passengers. The crew decided to return to CYVR as they were suffering from varying symptoms of light headedness, headache, tingling, nausea and irritated eyes. The flight and cabin crew members donned oxygen, and passengers were given therapeutic oxygen if requested. An emergency was not declared by the flight crew. The aircraft returned and landed overweight without further incident at CYVR, and taxied to the gate for deplaning. Announcements were made in the air and on the ground advising passengers of the situation; medical services were on the bridge offering assistance to anyone who accepted it. On two previous occasions there were reports of oil/fuel smell in the cockpit; the No. 1 Air-Conditioning Pack was deferred initially; when it recurred the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) was suspected and deferred (the No. 1 pack was cleared). Subsequently, troubleshooting concluded the air contamination was from the left engine, borescope inspections revealed traces of oil from the first stage of variable guide vanes. The minimum equipment list (MEL) was applied and the aircraft repositioned to Montreal/Pierre Elliott Trudeau Intl, QC (CYUL) under a Special Flight Permit. The engine will be replaced and sent for further investigation / repair. A Service Difficulty Report (SDR) has been submitted.

The second (Air Canada) Jazz Air Limited Partnership Bombardier CL-600-2D15 Regional Jet aircraft (C-FUJZ, operating as JZA8485) was on a scheduled IFR flight from Toronto (LBPIA) (CYYZ) to Thunder Bay Airport (CYQT). JZA8475 was en-route at FL380 CYOW YYB J513 YQT ... CYWG while JZA8485 was en-route FL360 CYYZ SSM J500 CYQT. JZA8475 was erroneously issued a descent clearance at 2257Z to FL290 at pilot's discretion (the clearance was actually intended for JZA8485 for descent to Thunder Bay Airport). At 2312Z, when the JZA8475 flight crew indicated that they were going to start a descent to FL290, the flight was re-cleared to maintain FL380. Safety was not assured during the period.
