Turkish Airlines Not Involved in Plane Crash

As a correction to mistaken information in the media, Turkish Airlines released a statement on Monday saying that it was not involved in an accident in a village in Kyrgyzstan.

Earlier this morning, a cargo flight with TC-MCL registration number, operated by ACT Airlines, departed from Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) to Bishkek Manas International Airport (FRU) had an accident near Bishkek at around 01:40 UTC.

“Neither the aircraft nor the crew are members of Turkish Airlines”, the airline said in a statement.

According to reports, the cargo jet was to make a stopover at Manas, near the capital city Bishkek, on its way from Hong Kong to Istanbul.

However, it crashed in a village in Kyrgyzstan when trying to land in poor visibility (heavy fog), killing at least 37 people.
