A passenger airliner of Transaero Airlines en route from Siberian city of Novosibirsk to the largest United Arab Emirates (UAE) city of Dubai flied back to the airport of departure after a detector in anti-icing system control was activated, aide of West Siberian transport prosecutor Oksana Gorbunova told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday.
