SYKTYVKAR, January 31, /ITAR-TASS/. A Boeing-737-542 aircraft belonging to the U Tair air carrier made an emergency landing in Syktyvkar, the capital of Komi Republic, at 20:00 Moscow time.
There were 111 passengers and six crewmen on board of the UT-596 flight that was bound from Moscow to Usink. No one was hurt.
Alexander Ponomarev, the director general of the Komiaviatrans Company, told Itar-Tass that the crew had decided to land in Syktyvkar because of technical failure. The information was confirmed by the Syktyvkar-based Prosecutor General’s Office on transport.
According to preliminary reports, the plane had developed a conditioning problem. One of the height indicators is also said to have broken down. The plane circled over Syktyvkar for 30 minutes, spending fuel, in order to land smoothly.
“All the passengers will be taken to a hotel in Syktyvkar where they will wait for a reserve plane to come and pick them up,” airport sources said.
The reserve plane was expected to leave Surgut at around 20:40 Moscow time.
A similar accident occurred in Syktyvkar on January 10 when a Boeing-737 plane with 42 passengers and six crewmen onboard made an emergency landing. The plane belonged to the U Tair air company. According to conclusions made by an expert commission, the accident was caused by a time-worn chassis. Luckily, none of the passengers or crew was hurt.
