SIMFEROPOL, October 19 (Itar-Tass) – A Russian jet having 276 passengers and six crewmembers aboard made an emergency landing in the airport of the Crimean capital Simferopol Wednesday night en route from St Petersburg to Egyptian beach city of Hurghada on the Red Sea.
Early reports indicate the captain took a decision to land in the nearest airport upon detecting flaws in the operation of an engine.
The Ukrainian authorities put the Simferopol garrison of the Ministry for Emergency Situations on high alert and summoned the medics of the disaster situations response center to duty, but luckily the jet made a safe landing.
All the passengers were taken to the airport’s waiting lounge. An inspection and troubleshooting of the jet’s systems was underway at the time of reporting.
This is the second instance over the past seven days where a jet that took off from St Petersburg makes an emergency landing.
October 15, an Antonov-148 jet with 70 passengers aboard had to land shortly after takeoff with only one engine functioning.
The latter accident was caused by a bird that had been trapped in the jet’s portside turbine.
