Kinik had earlier told Reuters there was “no chance” of any survivors, given the aircraft was a jet and it was flying in snowy weather, although he was unable to officially confirm fatalities. Calls to Basaran Holding’s office in IST went unanswered. Reza Jafarzadeh, spokesman for IR’s Civil Aviation Organization, told state television the jet had crashed near the southwestern city of Shahr-e Kord.
