Nordstar Compression Alert over Open Door

Sunday, December 15, 2013
By George Hatcher

A Nordstar Airlines emergency landing at Krasnoyarsk occurred after a cabin decompression alarm indicated problems aboard the Krasnoyarsk to Norilsk flight.

Pilots returned the Boeing 737 to Krasnoyarsk and made a safe landing at 6:26. An inspection revealed that a door had not been properly closed. The open door was unable to maintain cabin compression adequately, although the door itself was in working order.

No one was injured. Nordstar Airlines is now reviewing its procedures and local officials are opening an inquiry.
