An appeal was filed in the French Court of Appeal in the case against Utair Airlines



On April 2, 2012, near Tyumen, a UTair airliner ATR 72-210 crashed, operating flight UTA120 on the Tyumen-Surgut route. Of the 43 people on board (39 passengers and 4 crew members), 31 people died, 12 survived and were hospitalized. On April 11, one of the victims died, and on April 19, another victim died.

DTK Partners lawyers, working with American and French colleagues, filed a claim in a French court against the French manufacturer of the ATR-72 aircraft and UTair airline. Since the court of first instance rejected the claim due to the lack of jurisdiction of the French court, DTK Partners’ lawyers filed an appeal against this decision.
