An airliner flying from Dubai with at least 61 people on board crashed early Saturday in the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, according to the Russian Emergency Ministry.

The Boeing 737-800 crashed on a repeated landing attempt at the city’s airport, according to the ministry, which said there were 55 passengers and six crew aboard. Russian officials confirmed all aboard the plane were killed.

FlyDubai, the United Arab Emirates-based carrier, confirmed that flight FZ981 crashed on landing. “Fatalities have been confirmed as a result of this tragic accident,” the airline in statement.

The airline said flight FZ981 departed from Dubai International airport at 1820 GMT Friday (2.20pm ET Friday) and was bound for Rostov-on-Don in Russia. The crash occurred at the destination about 0055 GMT Saturday (8.55pm ET Friday), it added.

A FlyDubai spokesman said he had no further detail and that airline officials were still gathering information.

The local branch of the Emergency Ministry said in a statement that the pilot was forced to attempt a second landing “due to bad weather conditions.” The plane’s wing touched the runway, causing the plane to break apart, the statement said. Russian airports often lack the most sophisticated landing aids and access to advanced weather forecasting.

Vladimir Markin, a spokesman for Russia’s Investigative Committee, said the agency had opened a criminal case for “violation of air safety rules.”

A local official for the Emergency Ministry, Viktor Yatsutsenko, told Interfax news agency said that most of the passengers were Russian citizens, but that there were 11 foreigners on board, including all six crew members.
