The airport's real-time departures board showed three flights departing from Rostov-on-Don Monday morning.

FlyDubai's Boeing 737-800 from Dubai nosedived and exploded in a giant fireball on the airport runway before dawn on Saturday after trying to land for a second time in strong winds. Most of the passengers were Russian holidaymakers. The cause of the crash was not immediately confirmed but several planes had trouble landing at the airport at the time of the crash.

The black boxes were being analyzed in Moscow by experts from Russia, the United Arab Emirates and France, Russian officials said.
