Day earlier, the ill-fated plane took the daughter of a Turkish tycoon and seven of her friends to Dubai for a bachelorette party in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), global media reported.

Emergency crews had a hard approach to reach the crash site because of the mountainous terrain, ISNA said.

The locals reached the wreckage of crashed plane late evening on Sunday and encountered the corps which are not identifiable and need DNA examination, the spokesman for the organization said.

A website associated with Iran state TV quoted an emergency official as confirming that the crash killed all 11 people on board.

A little over an hour later, it rapidly gained altitude and then dropped drastically within minutes, according to FlightRadar24, a flight-tracking website.

Rezaee Far, the chief of Accidents Bureau of the OVA, said that based on the preliminary reports, the crashed plane type was Bombardier CL604. Officials at the airport did not immediately respond to requests for comment.


Basaran Investment Holding is active in the food, finance, energy, construction, tourism and travel industries, according to the company's website.

Turkish media earlier reported that Basaran's daughter and seven of her friends were returning from a hen party in Dubai.

Among the last photographs posted by Ba┼čaran was an image of the crashed plane posted three days ago.

In another picture, she holds heart-shaped balloons inside the plane.

There was no further activity on her account after that.

It is the second aircraft in as many months to have crashed in Iran.
