VLADIVOSTOK, November 11 (Itar-Tass) —Passengers of a Boeing-757-200 jet of the Yakutia airline that made a forced landing in Yakutsk will be taken to Moscow by a Tu-154 airplane, the airline’s press service reported on Friday.
According to the press service, the Tu-154 plane is scheduled to take off at 18:00 local time (12:00 Moscow time).
According to earlier reports, the Boeing-757-200 jet en route from the Far Eastern city of Magadan to Moscow made a forced landing in Yakutsk, because of technical malfunctions. There were 109 passengers onboard.
According to a spokesman for the Russian Air Transport Agency, while in the air, the Boeing-757-200 airplane developed malfunctions in the system feeding air to the flight deck. The pilots decided to land in the Yakutsk airport.

The Russian Air Transport Agency has set up an ad hoc commission to probe into the accident.
