Passenger aircraft makes emergency landing in Russia’s Urals

An Airbus A-320 passenger aircraft en route from Bulgaria to Russia made an emergency landing at Russia’s Koltsovo airport in the Urals, a spokeswoman for the airport said on Tuesday.

“Everything is all right with everyone,” she said but did not specify the number of people on board the aircraft.

Sergei Antonov, a spokesman for the Urals Airlines that the aircraft belongs to, has confirmed the plane’s emergency landing but revealed neither the cause of the incident nor any details.

The Airbus A-320 en route from the Bulgarian resort city of Bourgas to Russia’s Yekaterinburg performed the emergency landing at the Koltsovo airport at 0:20 Moscow time on Tuesday (20:20 GMT on Monday).
