A Fokker 70 aircraft, registered P2-ANY, owned and operated by Air Niugini, travelling on a passenger flight from Tokua International Airport,
to Jacksons International Airport, Port Moresby, experienced a rapid decompression/depressurisation event while descending through about 23,000 ft, and 25 nm North East of Jacksons.
The flight crew stated that they initially noticed an MFDS cabin altitude message and Master Caution alert as they were passing 24,000 ft. At about 23,000 ft, the ‘Excessive Cabin Altitude’ warning activated along with the Master Warning alert. The flight crew carried out the ‘Excessive Cabin Altitude’ emergency checklist, broadcast a ‘PAN, PAN’ and commenced an emergency descent to 10,000 ft. At the onset of the emergency, the flight crew donned their oxygen masks and manually deployed the passenger oxygen masks. At about 10,000 ft, the flight crew reverted to the normal descent and continued to land at Jacksons Airport.
