TSB update on the 8 January 2020 accident involving Ukrainian International Airlines flight 752 in Tehran, Iran

Gatineau, Quebec, 9 January 2020 — The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) again extends its condolences to the families and loved ones of the people who perished in the tragic crash of Ukrainian International Airlines flight 752 on 8 January 2020.

In accordance with Annex 13, part 5.27 of the Convention on International Civil Aviation, which is governed by the International Civil Aviation Organization, the TSB has been invited by the Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau of the Islamic Republic of Iran to attend the accident site. We have accepted this invitation and we are making arrangements to travel to the site. The TSB will be working with other groups and organizations already on site.

See more information about the TSB's role in foreign air investigations.

We have nothing further to add at this time, though we will provide updates when new information becomes available.


The TSB is an independent agency that investigates air, marine, pipeline, and rail transportation occurrences. Its sole aim is the advancement of transportation safety. It is not the function of the Board to assign fault or determine civil or criminal liability.
