The liner on a Tyumen-Noyabrsk flight with 34 passengers aboard flew out from Tyumen airport at 08:20 Moscow time. On the flight, supposedly one of the engines malfunctioned, and the captain decided to return to the airport.

A reserve plane was prepared. It was planned to take off at 10:20 Moscow time, the spokeswoman said.
