A Russian passenger plane has crashed after leaving Moscow’s Domodedovo airport with 71 people on board. The Saratov Airlines An-148 jet was en route to the city of Orsk in the Ural mountains, near #Russia’s border with Kazakhstan, when it went down.

All on board the Saratov Airlines plane are feared dead. Emergency services confirmed finding the debris of Antonov 148 on Sunday in Ramenski district on the outskirts of the capital, Russia’s Tass news agency reported.

The plane was heading from Moscow to Orsk city, carrying 65 passengers and seven crew members, according to Interfax news agency.

„There was no chance of survival for the crew and passengers,” a source told Interfax.

Another source from the emergency services told Interfax that the airplane was manufactured less than eight years ago.

„First it was used by Rossiya Airlines where it carried out international flights among others and later it was given to Saratov Airlines,” he said.

He said the handover took place as part of a subleasing agreement involving four planes of the same type, with a capacity of 83 seats.
