“As immediate assistance, the airline will provide pre-compensation to the next of kin of those killed and injured,” Air India Express wrote in its Twitter

Relatives of the deceased passenger over the age of 12 will be paid in terms of rupees over $ 13.3 thousand, under 12 years old about $ 6.7 thousand.

In addition, passengers with serious injuries can count on more than $ 2.6 thousand, and minor injuries and bruises – about $ 667.

The plane was en route to India from Dubai on August 7 and made an emergency landing at Kozhikode airport in Kerala state. The board, against the background of bad weather conditions, crossed the runway, fell off the slope and fell apart. As a result, 20 people died and more than 100 were injured.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has already expressed condolences in connection with the death of people as a result of this incident.
