Flydubai Plane crash in Russia

Dubai analysts are saying that the deadly crash of a flydubai plane on Saturday 19 march 2016 in southern Russia is surprising given the excellent safety record of the flydubai budget airline during seven years of its operation. Sixty One passengers and crew members died when the Boeing 737-800 crashed in poor weather conditions at the airport in Rostov-on-Don, a small airport by international standards, which can witness extreme weather conditions that affect commercial aviation. This fatal crash is first of its kind since flydubai began operations in 2009. This tragic event will require extensive investigation into the cause of the crash, and proper measures are being taken to deal with this incident  by Russian and Dubai authorities.
