OREANDA-NEWSTwo passenger planes — an Airbus A320 and a Boeing 777 — almost collided in the sky over Rostov-on-Don. This was reported by Telegram channel "112".

It is specified that the airliner of the Russian airline S7 flew from Rostov-on-Don to Moscow, but at altitude gain it crossed the course of Emirates Airlines aircraft, which was going from Oslo to Dubai.

It can be seen from the published negotiations of dispatchers and boards that dispatchers did not immediately notice the danger. One of them asked the other what was going on. The attempt to warn of the conflict of Arab pilots was not successful: they decided that the dispatchers' shouts were background talks. Then the airport staff contacted the Russian board.

The S7 crew complied with the order, and the tower advised him to accelerate the descent. Dispatchers redirected Emirates Airlines flight "to the right by 50 degrees". The distance between the airliners reached 150 meters — half the admissible values.

According to the channel, the planes "parted literally by a miracle". 

In October 2019, the plane of the Moldovan airline Fly One, flying from Chisinau to Moscow, almost collided with three cars during its flight. It is noted that when the Airbus 319 departed from the airport, there were three technical vehicles on the runway. The reason for the incident was a dispatcher's error.
