YEKATERINBURG, June 18. /ITAR-TASS/. An airliner of Russian Siberia’s Krasnoyarsk Airline Ikar on the way from Thailand, Southeast Asia, to the Russian Ural city of Yekaterinburg has made an emergency landing at the Chinese airport Haikou. The power generator malfunction caused the emergency landing, Deputy Director General for flight safety of the air company Gennady Chuprov told ITAR-TASS. In his words, 231 passengers, including 28 children, were accommodated at a hotel in the city of Wuhan and were provided with all primary necessities.
The flight IK-2474 by a long-haul airliner Boeing-767-300 was to arrive in the Ural city at 01.40am local time on Wednesday, but its arrival is preliminarily delayed to 3pm.
The Chinese airport does not have specialists who know this type of airliner, therefore, the air company is mulling two options - to send a repairman from Beijing to Haikou or Ikar technical specialists from Bangkok, but this will require a visa for them. “We will choose a quicker variant,” he said.
Passengers of the same airliner turned out to be in similar situation on June 4 when the flight from Yekaterinburg to Vietnam took off with a delay of 18 hours over the failure of the air motor starter.
Russian Ikar Airlines was founded in 2013. The airline makes charter flights from Siberian cities to resorts. Its basic harbor is the Krasnoyarsk airport Yemelyanovo. The air fleet consists of eight medium-and long-haul airliners Boeing 757-200 and 767-300 aged from 14 to 19 years.
