Sky News report that investigations on the fatal flight are underway. The BlackBox has been retrieved and it has been established that twenty priests were among 110 people who died in the Cuba plane crash.

Cuban president Miguel Diaz-Canel said an investigation had been launched into the crash, which happened on Friday.

In the meantime, Mexico’s government said that it would conduct an operational audit of the Mexican charter company Damojh airlines. The plane, a Boeing 737 built in 1979, was leased to the national carrier Cubana de Aviacion by the Mexican charter company. Damojh declined to comment, and said it would be communicating only through written statements.

The report adds that according to authorities in Guyana, and to a retired Cuban pilot, the Mexican firm had been the subject of two serious complaints about its crew’s performance over the last decade.

The company had permits needed to lease its aircraft and had passed a verification of its maintenance programme in November last year, Mexican authorities said. Boeing said in a statement that a “technical team stands ready to assist” and offered condolences to friends and relatives of the victims.
