Turkey's Transport Ministry said the plane belonged to Basaran Holding, which does business in sectors including construction, food, energy and finance, and is led by Huseyin Basaran.

The plane had left from the emirate of Sharjah and went down near the city of Shahr-e Kord, about 400 kilometers (250 miles) south of Tehran, state television reported.

The plane took off late yesterday afternoon and climbed to a cruising altitude of just over 35,000 feet.

It was reportedly travelling from the United Arab Emirates to Istanbul when the incident happened.

Last month, a plane carrying 66 people came down in Iran's Zagros mountains which are also in the west of the country.

Shortly before the plane dropped off the radar, the pilot requested to fly at a lower altitude, Iran's Civil Aviation Authority told local news media outlets.

Iranian emergency management officials said all the passengers were young women, according to state television IRNA.
