A Skywest Canadair CRJ-900, registration N817SK performing positioning flight OO-4981 from Minneapolis,MN (USA) to Saskatoon,SK (Canada) with only flight crew on board, was descending towards Saskatoon about 25nm southeast of the aerodrome, when the crew received an aft lavatory smoke indication. The flight crew was unable to verify whether there was smoke, declared emergency and continued for a safe landing at Saskatoon. Emergency services did not observe any trace of fire or smoke from the outside, a member of the flight crew inspected the aft lavatory and did not find any trace of fire, heat or smoke. The aircraft taxied to the apron, where emergency services inspected the inside of the aircraft without finding any anomaly.

The Canadian TSB reported maintenance inspected the aircraft, in particular also the aft lavatory and the smoke detector, but was unable to duplicate the fault.
