An Aeromexico aircraft traveling from Durango, Mexico (DGO) to Mexico Metropolis (MEX) crashed just soon after getting off on Tuesday afternoon, but no deaths have been noted between the one zero one occupants as a outcome of the crash, according to Durango officials as very well as Aeromexico.
Aeromexico Flight 2431 attempted to take off from DGO for the duration of negative weather with robust winds, according to Durango condition governor José Rosas Aispuro Torres. The Embraer E-190 regional jet attempted to abort the takeoff, the governor mentioned according to Mexican media, but was far too late in carrying out so and went down just soon after the runway finished, at close to 4pm nearby time.
(The tweet previously mentioned improperly identifies the airplane as a Boeing 737.)
“It is confirmed that there were no deaths next the incident of Flight Aeromexico 2431,” Aispuro Torres wrote on Twitter. “At this moment on behalf of the cabinet, led by Coordinator Rosario Castro, to go to to the injured and cooperate with airport authorities with what has occurred.”
According to Mexican Transportation Minister Gerardo Ruiz Esparza, there were ninety seven travellers and four crew associates on board. At this time, it stays unclear how several — if any — of people travellers and crew were injured as a outcome of the crash.
Images and online video from the scene display emergency responders as very well as smoke, however, the governor of Durango states that the fireplace from the aircraft is managed at this time.
The aircraft included in the incident, an E-190 with the registration XA-GAL, was developed in 2008. The aircraft operated beneath the registration N960W with US Airways until 2009 when it then improved ownership to Republic Airways. Aeromexico took delivery of the aircraft on June 27, 2014.
