The Federal Air Transport Agency commented on FlightRadar data on alarm signals from five Russian airliners
According to information from the air traffic tracking service FlightRadar24, an emergency situation occurred on five passenger planes in the skies of Russia. A refutation soon arrived.
It was provided by the Federal Agency for Air Transport.
According to the foreign service, alarm signals were recorded from several aircraft at once flying on routes within Russia. The Federal Air Transport Agency commented on FlightRadar data on alarm signals from five Russian airliners. They stated that all flights are operated normally, in compliance with relevant flight safety requirements.
This information was confirmed by the regional center of the Unified Air Traffic Management System located in St. Petersburg. They stated that no activations of emergency responders on passenger aircraft were recorded.
The Federal Air Transport Agency suggested that the cause of the alarming information was a system failure in the FlightRadar24 service.
Earlier, a number of Russian media published information that five passenger aircraft flying over the territory of the Russian Federation gave “General Alert” signals. At first, alarming messages allegedly came from flights flying from Cherepovets and Petrozavodsk to Moscow, as well as from Samara to St. Petersburg. Soon they were joined by airliners flying on the Sabetta-Moscow and Petrozavodsk-St. Petersburg routes. Fortunately, the alarm turned out to be false.
