The Airbus A-321 had just taken off from the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, on its way to the Russian city of St Petersburg. There were conflicting reports about the fate of the plane, some suggesting it had disappeared over Cyprus. Most of the passengers are said to be Russian tourists. The plane is operated by the Russian airline Kogalymavia. Latest reports say it is carrying 217 passengers and seven crew.

Kogalymavia Flight 9268 (KGL 9268/7K9268) was an international chartered passenger flight, operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia (branded as Metrojet), that crashed in northern Sinai following departure from Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport, Egypt, to Pulkovo Airport, St Petersburg, Russia on 31 October 2015 at 04:13 UTC (06:13 Egypt Standard Time).
