Information on current weather conditions is reported by air traffic controllers, while the final decision on landing is made by the captain of the aircraft, told TASS the representative of Rosaviation.

“The final decision on landing is made by the aircraft captain, in turn, controllers share information about current meteorological conditions,” – said the representative of the Federal air transport agency.

Two flights that were to land in Rostov-on-Don on the night of March 19, diverted to Krasnodar due to poor weather conditions. In addition, one flight returned to the departure airport to Istanbul, as evidenced by

Aeroflot flights from Sheremetyevo (SU 1166) and Czech airlines from Prague (OK 914) that were supposed to land in Rostov-on-Don at 2:15 and 3:25 Moscow time respectively, diverted to Krasnodar. Turkish airlines flight from Istanbul, which was to land at 3:55 Moscow time, returned to the departure airport.

The plane circled around the airport for two hours about 10 times waiting for better weather conditions before attempting the second landing.
