Accidents and incidents[edit]

  • On 22 March 2010, Aviastar-TU Flight 1906, a Tupolev Tu-204 (RA-64011) crashed on approach to Moscow Domodedovo International Airport. Only eight crew members were on board, and all of them survived.[3] Immediately upon the accident, the Russian aviation supervisory authority suspended Aviastar-TU from carrying passengers, pending an examination of the airline's flight operations.[3] In September 2010, the Russian aviation supervisory authority, МАК, released its final report into the accident.[4] The cause of the accident was attributed to pilot error, with a number of factors contributing to the accident including inadequate crew training and lack of cockpit resource management, failure of autoflight systems and regulatory violations by Aviastar-TU.
