Plane crash of Kogalymavia (Metrojet) airline in Egypt.

On October 31, 2015, as a result of an explosion on board, over the central part of the Sinai Peninsula (Egypt), the Airbus A321 operated by Kogalymavia airlines was crashed en route Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg. All passengers and crew members aboard died. The lawyers of DTK Partrens together with a leading American law firm began to represent the interests of the relatives of the victims. A claim was filed to Egyptian court for the liabilities of the operator against Kogalymavia and the insurance company Ingostrakh. Russian legislation and the existing Russian judicial practice do not provide the possibility for recovering adequate compensations for the relatives of the deceased passengers , therefore filing a lawsuit in the Egyptian court was due to the need to remove the case from Russian jurisdiction, and submit the dispute to the jurisdiction of Egypt.The Egyptian court will consider the case on the basis of Egyptian law, which allows to recover more compensation from the defendants.Individual lawsuits were filed in the Egyptian court for each victim for a total amount of $ 90 million. The court accepted the claims and scheduled the hearing for November 6, 2017.

Earlier in 2016, the lawyers of DTK Partners filed a lawsuit on behalf of the relatives of the decedents against the egyptian authorities based on the fact of terorist act on the board. The reason for filing the lawsuit was that the explosion on board the aircraft was the result of poor security at Sharm el-Sheikh Airport and the negligence of the Egyptian authorities. The litigation against the Egyptian authorities and the airline continues.
