Airbus A321 passengers, who were flying from Russia to the illegally annexed Crimea and made an emergency landing on a corn field, were offered several options for how they can reach their destination after the incident, TASS reported.

Thus, about three dozen passengers out of 226 agreed to take another flight from Domodedovo to Simferopol on the evening of August 15 and they were taken by bus to the airport.

Also, passengers were offered another option – to fly on August 16 with a different flight, and before that stay at the hotel. Another option was to take the train to Anapa in the Krasnodar Territory of the Russian Federation, and from there get by road.

But as a result, many passengers refused to ever fly to the occupied peninsula at all.

On August 15, the Airbus A321 Ural Airlines plane, flying from Zhukovsky Airport near Moscow to the annexed Simferopol, made an emergency landing on a corn field. As a result, 55 people were injured, including 17 children.
