Dubai: 7 friends killed in plane crash after party

The flight likely carried Mina Basaran, the 28-year-old daughter of the chairman of Basaran Investment Holding.

Mina Basaran, 28, who studied for a master's degree in luxury brand management at the European Business School in London, her seven friends, and the three crew were all killed.

The all-female crew who also died consisted of pilot Beril Gebes, a former Turkish Airlines pilot who previously flew with the carrier's Airbus A320 fleet.

Mina Başaran was on her way home from Dubai to Istanbul, after her hen party, when the private jet she was travelling in crashed near the Iranian mountains.

Some ran their own fashion and jewellery companies while Ms Basaran was being groomed to succeed her father as head of a business empire, Basaran Investment Holdings, that includes interests in finance, tourism, construction and aviation.

Shahr-e Kord is almost 370 km (230 miles) south of the capital, Tehran.

The flight took off on Sunday from Sharjah International Airport in the United Arab Emirates.

Sharjah civil aviation authorities said in a statement late Sunday night that the plane's eight passengers were six Turks and two Spaniards.

Mina Basaran had been expected to marry Murat Gezer on April 14 at Ciragan Sarayi, a five-star hotel in Istanbul, according to Turkey's Hurriyet newspaper.




"One photo showed the back Mina in a personalised embroidered denim jacket which read, "#BetterTogether" atop of the words, "Mrs Bride".

The last videos posted to her account showed her and friends enjoying a concert by pop star Rita Ora at a popular Dubai nightclub.

Turkish media reported the two female pilots killed were Beril Gerbes and Melike Kuvvet.

The Red Cross found the wreckage an reported that none had survived the crash.

Sunday's crash comes after an Iranian ATR-72, a twin-engine turboprop used for short-distance regional flying, crashed in southern Iran, killing all 65 people on board in February.

According to Red Crescent Organization of Chahar Mahal and Bakhtiari province, after 15 hours of rescue and search efforts, all the bodies have been recovered and taken down from the top of Helen Mountain by helicopters, while three of the bodies are not identifiable.

It was gathered that the flight which was heading to Instanbul in Turkey began to fail after the plane's engine caught fire and crashed into the mountains of Iran.

Turkey's Transport Ministry said the aircraft belonged to her father's company.
