A plane carrying Peru fans from Yekaterinburg to Tyumen in Russia landed safely on Friday.

After an engine fault caused the cabin to fill with smoke,

Russia’s air transport regulator said.

Safety concerns have plagued Russia’s airline industry,

which has witnessed multiple fatal crashes in recent years.

The engine of a plane carrying Saudi Arabia’s

team caught fire earlier this week

 

Russia’s state aviation agency, Rosaviatsiya,

said on Saturday that a Utair plane carrying fans

to Moscow via Tyumen had suffered engine failure.

 

“During the landing approach, there was a failure in

the second turboprop engine,

” Rosaviatsiya said in a statement.

“As a result of the abnormal engine activity,

smoke from overheated oil got into the passenger

cabin of the aircraft through the air-conditioning system.”

 

Rosaviatsiya said the smoke cleared from the cabin

and that the pilot was able to safely land the

plane on one engine.

 

A spokeswoman for Utair said media reports

about a fire breaking out on the plane were incorrect.
