The investigation continues into the causes and circumstances of the crash in Sheremetyevo aircraft Sukhoi Superjet 100 “Aeroflot”, in which 41 people died. The actions of the crew in the cabin appreciated the TV channel “MIR 24” the head of the Sheremetyevo trade Union of flight attendants Ilona Borisova.

Ilona Borisova: unfortunately, the passengers were saved, not all, based on the number of 78 persons, including crew. However, already in the first video that the flight attendants are very professional. Immediately after the stop of the plane immediately opened the door, and the cabin crew started to evacuate. In this case, the actions of the flight attendants absolutely correct, absolutely correct.

Ilona Borisova: it has to be stressed, since the information is not completely accurate. 90 seconds is the standard evacuation for each aircraft, I stress, provided opening all emergency exits. In this case, were open only the front outputs. The rear outputs use was not subject, because there was spilled fuel and the blazing fire. Evacuation of the rear outputs could lead to the fact that the passengers would have been completely destroyed. The crew worked smoothly. But if you use only a few exits for evacuation of passengers is reduced and a multiple of the time allotted for evacuation.
