None of the 27 passengers of the Boeing 777 that flew from Moscow to Bangkok has serious or life-threatening injuries, according to information from the medical institutions in Thailand’s capital that are treating the victims.
None of the passengers suffered spinal compression fractures. Fifteen Russian Federation citizens and two citizens of Thailand currently remain hospitalised. The remaining passengers were discharged after a medical examination. The patients that are still under doctors’ care have contusions, and several have fractured or broken bones.
Aeroflot representatives and employees of the Consulate of the Russian Federation in Bangkok are in contact with the victims to provide them with assistance. Aeroflot’s Bangkok office is assisting with hotel booking cancellations, changing check-in dates, as well as re-ticketing of transfer passengers’ flights to their final destinations, as and when needed. All costs related to re-ticketing, as well as expenses for passengers’ medical treatment, will be fully covered by the airline.
