All risks related to Boeing 767's hard landing in Barnaul were insured by Ingosstrakh - deputy head of insurance company

MOSCOW. Sept 26 (Interfax) - All risks related to the hard landing of a Boeing 767-300 that took place in Barnaul on September 25 were insured by Ingosstrakh , the deputy head of the company, Ilya Solomatin, told Interfax.

"Work with the client is now underway," he said.

Azur Air's Boeing 767-300 en route from Cam Ranh, Vietnam to Barnaul crash-landed at the airport in Barnaul on the evening of September 25. Its landing gear caught fire in the process. There were 344 people, including ten crewmembers, on board.

Forty-nine people requested medical aid and one was hospitalized. No children were hurt.

As a rule, liability risks before passengers and crewmembers are insured under comprehensive-insurance contracts for airlines, as is the airplane itself, under an aviacasco agreement.
