The Russian airline whose jet crashed in Egypt killing everyone on board said on Monday that the crash could not have been caused by technical faults or human error.
Alexander Smirnov, Deputy General Director of the airline, said that “the crash, in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, could only have been the result of some other technical or physical action’’ which caused it to break up in the air and then plummet to the ground.
“The plane was in excellent condition, we rule out a technical fault and any mistake by the crew,’’ Smirnov told newsmen at a conference in Moscow.
The crashed Airbus A321 plane, operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia, was carrying holiday makers from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg when it crashed in the Sinai Peninsula on Saturday morning.
