Tigerair Australia A320 in cabin fume incident

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) is investigating a cabin fume incident involving a Tigerair Australia Airbus A320 on 1 March.

The aircraft, bearing registration VH-VNO (MSN 4053) was operating a Brisbane-Melbourne flight, when the incident took place at 9:33 local time.

Crew members declared a 'pan' due to report of fumes in the cabin during descent to Melbourne. The aircraft landed safely and no passengers were affected, but one cabin crew member became unwell, the ATSB says.

The investigation is expected to be completed by May.

Flightglobal's Fleets Analyzer shows that the A320 is a 2009-build model, powered by International Aero Engines V2500 engines, and leased from GECAS.
