The Flightradar24 website reported that after the first attempt of the Boeing FlyDubai to land at the airport of Rostov tried three times to land the flight of «Aeroflot», but the plane has gone to another site in Krasnodar.

CEO Advisory-analytical Agency «Security of flights» Sergey Melnichenko on the radio said that the pilot could fly to a reserve airport, and the investigation should focus on why this was not done.

«The Commission, which has already been created, will decipher the black boxes and establish the most likely cause. But at least the fact that the first attempt to land was unsuccessful, and after that the plane was in the waiting area for about two hours, says that, obviously, the crew just waited until weather conditions would improve… within two hours it was possible to fly quite far. The more that are located near international airports and Mineralnye Vody, and Krasnodar. In the end, if the plane was over two hours in the waiting area, then he had enough fuel to fly to Moscow — in Moscow the weather is good. So I have to figure out what is the reason, why such decision was made,» — said Melnichenko.
