Airplane Carrying 66 Passengers Crashes In Central Iran - All Passengers Dead - Photo


An Iranian passenger plane operated by Aseman Airlines, carrying 66 people has crashed in central Iran during a flight from Tehran to Yasuj, according to Iranian news media report. The crash occurred few hours ago. This is making the second plane to crash in just two weeks following the Russian plane that crashed on 11th of this month, killing all 71 passengers on board.   

A spokesperson for Iran Aseman Airlines told state TV that Sunday's air crash killed all 66 people on board though rescuers are yet to get to the crash site.

According to Aljazera News, the plane went down in a mountainous area near the town of Semirom, the news agency ISNA quoted Mojtaba Khaledi, emergency services spokesperson, as saying. The Iranian Red Crescent said it had deployed to the area, which was quite foggy at the time of the crash.

State-run PressTV said the Iran Aseman Airlines flight was carrying 60 passengers and six crew members. Iran Aseman Airlines is a semi-private air carrier headquartered in Tehran that specialises in flights to remote airfields across the country and also flies internationally.

The ATR-72, a twin-engine turboprop, is used for short-distance regional flying. Authorities said they would be investigating the cause of the air crash though some Iranian risk analyst are proposing mechanical problem as the plane is said to have lost contact with the tower 20mins after takeoff.
