MOSCOW, Sept 11 (Reuters) – A plane flying from the Turkish resort of Antalya to Vladivostok in Russia’s far east made a safe emergency landing on Saturday in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, a source at the airport told Reuters.
There were no reports of anybody being hurt.
Azur Air, a former regional Russian airline which now operates charter flights, could not immediately be reached for comment.
