MOSCOW, Sept.11 (Reuters) – A plane flying from the Turkish resort of Antalya in Vladivostok in the Russian Far East made an emergency safe landing on Saturday in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, said to Reuters a source at the airport.

Azur Air flight ZF268, a Boeing (BA.N) 767 aircraft, requested an emergency landing as it flew over Krasnoyarsk after experiencing hydraulic problems, Russian news agency Interfax reported.

There have been no reports that anyone was injured.

Azur Air, a former Russian regional airline that now operates charter flights, could not be reached immediately for comment.

Krasnoyarsk International Airport did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Another Azur Air flight from Antalya to the Russian city of Belgorod, about 580 km (360 miles) south of Moscow, began an emergency descent on Friday after a pressure alert in the cabin, the Aviation Herald aviation safety publication reported.

That plane, a Boeing 757, returned safely to Antalya and a replacement Boeing 767 flew to Belgorod after a delay, according to the report and flight tracking website Flightradar24.
