PARIS, November 10. /TASS/. Aircraft manufacturer Airbus has said it did not have any evidence that the A321 plane that crashed in Egypt had any technical faults.
"The Aibus’ registry did not have any data pointing to technical faults of this particular A321 plane," a representative of the company told TASS on Tuesday. "However, there are no grounds to say anything with certainty for now. The conclusions can be made only after the official investigation," he added.
On Monday Airbus CEO Fabrice Bregier said at the Dubai Airshow that it is important to wait for the results of the investigation which has so far not led to any technical measures toward the company’s A321 aircraft fleet.
Russian Kogalymavia’s A321 plane en route from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg crashed on October 31 around 30 minutes after takeoff in North Sinai, 100 kilometers to the south of Al-Arish. Flight 9268 carried 217 passengers and seven crewmembers. Egyptian authorities said no one survived in the crash. Most passengers were Russian nationals.
