INCIDNET | Pilot deployed oxygen masks due to change of altitude – Zambia Airways


ZAMBIA Airways has clarified that the deployment of oxygen masks to passengers on its Ndola-Lusaka bound flight was due to a “change in flight altitude”. On Monday, images of slightly deformed water bottles and passengers trying to block their ears to ease discomfort on the Zambia Airways flight went viral on social media, with some blogs reporting that the plane suffered a cabin pressure loss. But responding to a query in a statement, Zambia Airways said unlike other airlines, its plane demands deployment of oxygen masks upon a change in flight altitude.

Zambia Airways runs a fleet of a single aircraft De Havilland Dash 8-400 aged 11.6 years old according to airfleets.net.
