Incident at CALGARY INTL AB (CYYC)

Summary

2001-10-09: UPDATE TSB reported that on climb out of Calgary, the cabin altitude in the Boeing 737-217 continued to climb. The flight crew carried out the QRH emergency procedures and the pressure stabilized for a short time. When the cabin altitude began to climb again the flight crew requested and inititated an emergency descent from FL 240. The passenger masks deployed on descent through 18,000 feet. The flight crew cancelled the emergency prior to landing as all other systems were operating normally, and the aircraft returned to Calgary without further incident. Maintenance personnel re-stowed the masks, replaced the pressure controller and the crew and passenger oxygen bottles, and returned the aircraft to service.
2001-09-27: ACA 3653, a B737, departed Calgary for Vancouver and when the flight was 40 NM west, the crew declared an emergency because the cabin depressured. The flight returned to land uneventfully at Calgary and CFR was not required. TSB will be contacting the company.
