Turkish private jet carrying 11 crashes in Iran

A bride and her entire hens party has been killed after her private plane crash landed on return from a bachelorette party in Dubai.

Bride-to-be Mina Basaran, 28, was celebrating her impending marriage to Murat Gezer when her plane burst into flames and crashed in the south of Iran on Sunday.

All 11 passengers and crew members on board the flight from Sharjah to Istanbul were killed, authorities confirmed on Monday.  

A spokesman for Iran's emergency management organisation, Mojtaba Khaledi, said local villagers discovered the wreckage.

'[They] found only badly burned bodies and no survivors,' he said.

Mr Khaledi said they would require DNA tests to formerly identify those on board.

Just one day before her tragic death, Miss Basaran posted a photo alongside her bridesmaids celebrating the ill-fated hens trip.

Miss Basaran was pictured in a white dressing gown, while her seven bridesmaids were in pink.

Two days earlier, Miss Basaran shared a photo of herself in front of the private plane, which is believed to be owned by her wealthy father, Huseyin Basaran. 

Holding a bouquet of flowers, Miss Basaran wore a denim jacket embroidered with the words 'Mrs Bride' and 'better together'.

The young businesswoman was also pictured inside the plane, carrying a string of love-heart shaped balloons. 

Miss Basaran had spent the past few days celebrating in the United Arab Emirates with seven of her closest friends. 

The trip was a traditional 'farewell' to her friends before her marriage. She became engaged to her fiance in October.  

Miss Basaran was due to marry her fiance Murat Gezer on April 14.

The 28-year-old was also in line to take over her father's business, Basaran Investment Holding. 

The Istanbul-based Basaran is active in the energy, construction and tourism sectors. It also owns hotels. 

The 28-year-old had become a board member of her father's company already in 2013, Turkish reports said.
