Reuters: Western intelligence agencies see no signs Ukraine airliner was shot down

Crashed January 8, 2020 on takeoff on flight PS752 from IKA to KBP,  176 killed

From Reuters:

“The initial assessment of Western intelligence agencies is that a Ukrainian airliner which crashed in Iran on Wednesday was not brought down by a missile, said a Canadian security source.

The source, who declined to be identified, said the agencies believed the Boeing (BA.N) 737 plane had suffered a technical malfunction. The Ukraine International Airline jet crashed shortly after takeoff from Tehran, killing all 176 people on board.”

Also from Reuters:

Ukraine International Airlines issued this second statement:

The day of January 8, 2020, is marked with black for the time being.

Despite the airline’s employees have repeatedly undergone special training, we could never grow emotionally and psychologically strong enough to face up to such a tragedy.

Today, all our thoughts and prayers are with the passengers and crew of PS752 Tehran – Kyiv flight.

We express profound sympathy to the families and friends of the victims. We share your pain, we mourn together with you, and we remember everyone whose life was taken away in the sky of Iran.

We’ll make every effort to find out the cause of the tragedy and the families of the passengers and crew get all the help and support they need.

The airline has also suspended flights to and from Tehran:

Due to the situation in the region, UIA announces the suspension of its scheduled flights between Kyiv and Tehran, effective 08 January, 2020, until further notice.

The decision made by the management of the UIA and confirmed as a prohibition issued by State Aviation Administration of Ukraine for flights in Iran’s airspace for all Ukrainian registration aircraft.

Passengers will be rerouted, where possible, or offered a refund for unused flights. Passengers are advised to contact the place of ticket purchase.

Information on the crew:

With due allowance for the complexity and duration of the flight, the UR-PSR aircraft’s crew was augmented.

Flight crew comprised three pilots:

  • Captain Volodymyr Gaponenko (11600 hours on Boeing 737aircraft including 5500 hours as captain);
  • Instructor pilot Oleksiy Naumkin (12000 hours on Boeing 737 aircraft including 6600 hours as captain);
  • First officer Serhii Khomenko (7600 hours on Boeing 737 aircraft).

“Tehran airport is anything but a simple one. Therefore, for several years UIA has been using this airport to conduct training on Boeing 737 aircraft aimed at evaluating pilots’ proficiency and ability to act in emergency cases, – noted Ihor Sosnovsky, UIA Vice President Operations. – According to our records, the aircraft ascended as high as 2400 meters. Given the crew’s experience, error probability is minimal. We do not even consider such a chance.”

Cabin crew comprised six flight attendants:

  • Ihor Matkov, chief flight attendant;
  • Kateryna Statnik;
  • Mariia Mykytiuk;
  • Valeriia Ovcharuk;
  • Yuliia Solohub;
  • Denys Lykhno.

UIA condoles deeply to families and friends of the passengers and the crew.
