Pressurization loss

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


An Airbus A319, flying from France to UK was climbing through FL220 about 40nm northwest of Paris when the crew initiated an emergency descent to FL090 due to problems with the cabin pressure. The aircraft turned around and returned to Paris for a safe landing on runway 09R about 35 minutes later.

A replacement plane was available 60 minutes later to restart the flight.
