    "According to Rostransnadzor, a Boeing 737-300 owned by the KD Avia airline crash-landed at the Kaliningrad airport on October 1 on a flight from Barcelona. None of the 108 passengers on board was injured," the spokesman said, referring to the country's transportation regulator.

    According to preliminary reports, there was a problem with the plane's landing gear.

    The Kaliningrad airport is temporarily closed over the accident.

    A similar Boeing jet, owned by Aeroflot Nord, a subsidiary of Russia's flagship air carrier Aeroflot, crashed September 14 on a rail line linking Yekaterinburg and Perm during its final approach to Perm airport in the Urals killing all 88 people onboard.
