FlyDubai CEO Ghaith al-Ghaith stated that the company won't release the names of victims of the Rostov-on-Don plane crash until "we make sure that we inform the families of the victims first." Al-Ghaith was speaking at a press conference in Dubai on Sunday.

The CEO stated that the company has “specialists investigating on the ground of the crash site,” and that they hope to find “the reason of the accident as soon as possible.”

Finally, al-Ghaith urged the cessation of “rumours and estimations” of the crash, asking that “everyone stops these estimations and waits for the results of the investigations.”

The FlyDubai passenger Boeing 737-800 travelling from Dubai to Rostov-on-Don, crashed near the runway on its second landing approach early on Saturday morning, killing all 62 on board.

The Russian Investigative Committee is focussing on two possible versions of the crash, including human error amid bad weather conditions and a possible technical fault. EMERCOM informed the public on Saturday that both of the plane's black box flight recorders had been recovered from the crash site and are now being studied.
