YEKATERINBURG, December 07, 23:44 /ITAR-TASS/. A Bombardier CRJ-200 airliner bound for Syktyvkar made an emergency landing at the Koltsovo airport in Yekaterinburg, the Urals, on Saturday morning. None of the passengers was hurt, a Russian transport official from the Russian Interior Ministry told Itar-Tass. After several hours at the airport, the passengers took another flight to Syktyvkar.
The Bombardier CRJ-200 belongs to the RusLine air company.
The flight’s captain decided to land in Koltsovo five minutes after the take-off because of a breakdown in the work of the plane’s navigation system.
That was the second emergency landing by a Bombardier CRJ-200 aircraft in Yekaterinburg over the past twenty four hours. A Bombardier belonging to the Utair air company which was on a flight from Moscow to Tyumen made an emergency landing in Koltsovo on December 6 after its left engine had failed. There were 42 passengers and five crewmen onboard.
“Greed for gain often pushes firm directors to various crimes and violation of flight safety regulations,” Valery Vasyushin, the transport prosecutor of the Sverdlovsk region, told Itar-Tass. However, he said that a proposal to ban the operation of planes older than 15 years in Russia needed additional consideration.
“I believe that it is necessary to take account of the type of an aircraft in each particular case,” Vasyushin said.
