Confidence Rating: Accident investigation report completed and information captured
Austrian Airlines flight OS676 was evacuated on the ramp at Dnipropetrovsk International Airport (DNK), Ukraine after smoke was observed in the cabin.

As a result of the investigation of the serious incident, the Commission determined that smoke in the AC cabin had been caused by:
- an excess of hydraulic fluid level in the reservoir of the hydraulic system No.2:
- a malfunction of the hydraulic system No.2 pressure valve due to a malfunction of the check pressure valve between the hydraulic system No. 2 and preliminary pressurization system;
- a malfunction of the check valve in the air supply system of pre-pressurization;
- infiltration of the vapors/fumes of hydraulic fluid in the air distribution and bleed (right part) system through the pressure valve and the return check valve of hydraulic system No.2:
- mixing vapors/fumes of hydraulic fluid with the hot air from the engine compressor and their probable contact with the heat exchanger unit of the air distribution system;
- initiation of an air conditioning system for heating.

Contributing factors.
Increasing the air supply now from the distribution and bleed (right part) system into the air conditioning system, as well as an increase of the engines rate by the PlC resulted in even greater smoke and triggered the smoke detector in the toilet cabin (alarm «LAVATORY SMOKE DETECTOR»).
