Nordwind flight attendant died in an accident on the way from the airport to the hotel

The crew of Nordwind Airlines had a terrible accident after performing flight N4 520 from Kurgan. Late yesterday evening, a minibus was heading from the airport to the hotel and on the Adler-Psou bypass road crashed into a road service truck at high speed.

As a result of the accident, 34-year-old flight attendant Alena M. died; she left behind two children. Two other crew members were also seriously injured and are now in hospital. There is information that one flight attendant has a ruptured spleen, another has facial wounds. “Nordwind Airlines expresses sincere condolences to the family and friends of the deceased and is ready to provide the necessary assistance to the investigation. We wish the injured a speedy recovery,” the carrier’s website says. The editors of TourDom.ru sent a request to the airline asking for comment on the incident.

There is no official information from the police about the causes of the accident yet. According to eyewitnesses, road service employees did not put up a fence at the repair site. In addition, there are reports that the driver of the minibus was distracted by his phone. However, all these circumstances must be clarified by the investigation.

Aviation chats are actively discussing the tragedy. “The worst part of our job is the journey to the hotel,” says one of the flight attendants. Some flight attendants advise to be sure to buckle up during the transfer, which many do not do: “Buckle up on transfers! No matter how many times I fly, no one wears seat belts in minibuses!” Subscribers of the telegram channel “Roof of TurDoma” pay pay attention not to the aggressive driving style of drivers in Sochi: “The drivers there are peculiar, of course. In the spring I took a taxi with my child, everyone tried to chat on the phone. And even on serpentine roads in the mountains. And they are very unhappy when you make comments.”

And of course, in specialized groups on social networks there are a lot of condolences and words of support for the family of the deceased Alena. Perhaps a fundraiser will be announced to help the family.
