UTair Aviation Company’s passenger airplane SGJ 200 had to perform an emergency landing at the airport of Urai, Khanty-Mansiysky Autonomous Region, as its flaps failed to open, an officer from the district division of the Emergency Ministry told RIA Novosti.

‘It was announced that the airplane flying from Moscow to Urai did not manage to get the flaps open. There were four crew members and twenty-seven passengers on board,’ the officer explained.

He said the Emergency Ministry staff and the town’s emergency service headed off for the airport at once.

‘The plane landed okay; no one was injured or killed,’ the officer noted.
