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.
