Iranian Labor News Agency ILNA rescue workers wait for the bodies of passengers from a Turkish private jet that crashed on Sunday in the Zagros Mountains outside of the city of Shahr-e Kord outside of the city

All 11 people on board a private Turkish plane were presumed dead on Sunday after it crashed and burst into flames on an Iranian mountainside while en route from the United Arab Emirates to Istanbul, officials said.

A day ago, Basaran posted a picture with seven smiling friends from a Dubai resort.

Calls to Basaran Holding's office in Istanbul went unanswered.

Reports say the plane fell down near Shahr-e Kord, the capital city of Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province.

"My condolences to those who lost their loved ones", the head of the Turkish Red Crescent, Kerem Kinik, said on Twitter, citing his Iranian sister organisation.

It added that the plane took off from Sharjah International Airport in the UAE.

Mina Basaran, a 28-year-old woman who is part of Basaran Holding's board of managers and is in line to run the business, posted photographs on Instagram of what appeared to be her bachelorette party in Dubai. The state-run IRNA news agency and state television said rescuers were trying to reach the scene.

Iranian news agencies are reporting that a Turkish plane traveling in Iran's air space has crashed.

In February, an Iranian ATR-72 jet crashed in southern Iran killing all 65 people on board.

The plane had disappeared from radar after taking off from Tehran on a domestic flight as a snowstorm battered the mountains.

Rescue teams had to battle bad weather for days before they were able to recover the black boxes of that aircraft and had to interrupt their operation several times because of bad weather.
