Balkan Holidays A319 at Mumbai on Mar 19th 2016, hydraulic leak and double hydraulic fault indication
Last Update: February 28, 2017 / 15:41:32 GMT/Zulu time
India's DGCA released their final report concluding the probable cause of the incident was:
Failure of the Green Hydraulic System due loss of hydraulic fluid from the damaged 'LH MLG door actuator flexible hose' caused emergency landing of the aircraft. Failure of Yellow Hydraulic System could not be confirmed on ground.
The DGCA analysed that the flexible hose of the left hand main landing gear door was found pierced near its union thread and leaking fluid. Loss of fluid and loss of pressure/system of the green hydraulic system were attributed to that damaged hose. The damaged flexible hose was replaced. The overheat of the yellow hydraulic system could not be confirmed on the ground. The pilot decision to return was justified, the attempt to recover the yellow hydraulic system was successful. The pilots' handling of the aircraft did not contribute to the occurrence.
The DGCA analysed that weather did not contribute to the occurrence.
The DGCA analysed that cabin crew made announcements to the passengers, including in Hindi, to put on their life jackets, when a number inflated their life jackets announcements were made not to inflate the life jackets and a number of passengers were prevented to inflate their life jackets. The handling of the occurrence by cabin crew was satisfactory.
