The airport in the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don reopened Monday, two days after a passenger jet crashed there, killing all 62 on board, as investigators continued their probe into the disaster.

 

The FlyDubai Boeing 737, which took off from Dubai, exploded into a fireball on Saturday after missing the runway in southern Russia while making a second attempt to land in heavy wind and rain.

 

“The airport is now fully functional,” an airport representative told AFP.

 

On Sunday, officials said workers finished clearing the runway of debris, which investigators said had been scattered up to 1.5 kilometers (one mile) away from the crash site.
