Air Canada Rouge, Smoke in Galley

April 22, 2017

An Air Canada Rouge Boeing 767-300, registration C-GBZR performing flight RV-1831 from Vancouver,BC (Canada) to Honolulu,HI (USA) with 290 people on board, was enroute at FL350 over the Pacific Ocean about 560nm southwest of Vancouver when smoke emanated from a forward galley. Responding cabin crew identified a utility light as source of the smoke, a halon fire extinguisher was discharged and the related circuit breaker was deactivated. The flight crew in the meantime declared PAN, turned around and diverted to Portland,OR (USA) for a safe landing about 70 minutes later.

The Canadian TSB reported the airline included the occurrence in their safety management system and is investigating the occurrence.
