MOSCOW, March 27. /TASS/. The airline FlyDubai has provided financial assistance to the relatives of 40 victims of the air crash in Rostov-on-Don in south Russia, the Russian Transport Ministry reported on Sunday.
"The size of the initial payment equals 135,500 rubles [$1,978] per each victim," the ministry said in a statement.
The airline FlyDubai has decided to open a center in Rostov-on-Don to provide financial support to the families and relatives of the air crash victims.
FlyDubai’s Boeing 737-800 crashed at Rostov-on-Don’s airport in the small hours on March 19 during a second attempt to land in complicated weather conditions of strong side wind and rain. The plane served regular Flight FZ 981 from Dubai. The passenger jet capable of carrying 189 passengers had 62 people aboard, including the crew. None has survived.
The investigation looks into several versions of the air crash: a pilot error, a technical malfunction, bad weather conditions and others.
The United Arab Emirates’ FlyDubai airline said earlier it would pay $20,000 per every passenger of the plane that had crashed at the airport of Russia’s Rostov-on-Don.
