    The runway at the Rostov-on-Don Airport (ROV), where a Boeing 737-800 passenger jet crashed on Saturday killing 62 people, has been restored, the Russian Emergencies Ministry's press service said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Saturday, the FlyDubai Boeing 737-800 plane with 55 passengers and 7 crew members on board crashed at the airport while attempting landing. The plane was flying to Rostov-on-Don from Dubai. Nobody survived the crash, which occurred amid poor visibility conditions.

    "The recovery work is complete," the press service told journalists.

    The Russian Investigative Committee is considering several versions of the crash, including a crew mistake, technical failure and difficult weather conditions.
