The plane Boeing 737-800 operated by NordStar has made an emergency landing at Norilsk Airport, spokeswoman for the West-Siberian Transport Prosecutor’s Office Oksana Gorbunova told TASS on Monday.
“The emergency landing occurred at 06:15 (02:15 Moscow time). The Boeing 737-800 of the NordStar air company was en route from Domodedovo Moscow to Norilsk. When it was approaching to land, a flap extension sensor was activated. The landing was carried out well,” she said.
Gorbunova reported that there were 166 adult passengers, 20 children and six crew members onboard the plane.
