ROSTOV-ON-DON, March 21. /TASS/. Flights have resumed from Rostov-on-Don’s airport for the first time since Saturday’s crash of the FlyDubai’s Boeing 737-800.
Two Donavia flights have taken off from the airport, the company’s press secretary Inna Churliayeva told TASS on Monday adding that the two planes are bound for Russia’s St. Petersburg and Armenia’s Yerevan respectively.
"The first two flights of Donavia have taken off. The first flight with 82 passengers onboard will arrive at St. Petersubrg’s Pulkovo airport at 9:28am Moscow time. The second, with 98 passengers onboard, - to Yerevan at 9:39am. Both planes are carrying children as well," Churliayeva said.
A FlyDubai’s Boeing 737-800 crashed at Rostov-on-Don’s airport in the small hours on March 19 during a second attempt to land in complicated weather conditions of strong side wind and rain. The plane served regular Flight FZ 981 from Dubai. The passenger jet capable of carrying 189 passengers had 62 people aboard, including the crew. None has survived.
The investigation looks into several leads: a pilot error, a technical malfunction, bad weather conditions, and others.
