ASTANA, September 8 (Itar-Tass) — All jets of the Yakovlev-42 family of medium-range airliners that belong to the airlines in Kazakhstan will be subjected to an urgent troubleshooting, says a decision the Kazakhstani Transport Ministry took Thursday.
According to the ministry’s data, a total of four Yakovlev-42’s are in service in Kazakhstan at the moment.
Wednesday, September 7, a Yakovlev-42 jet crashed near the Russian city of Yaroslavl seconds after takeoff from the local airport. It was due to perform a chartered flight to the Belarussian capital Minsk.
The accident took away the lives of 43 people, leaving only two survivors. It wiped out Russia’s top-rated Lokomotiv Yaroslavl ice hockey team practically in full force.
Of the 45 people aboard, eleven were citizens of foreign countries.
“In the wake of the recent developments, the Ministry of Transport and Communications has dispatched an instruction to all the airlines to do an urgent troubleshooting of the jets of this family for the purpose of establishing their consistency with flight standards and drawing up reports on their technical status and flightworthiness,” the ministry said in a press release.
In the meantime, the Kazakhstani ice hockey club Barys has taken a decision to change over to the jets of different types for its flights.
