Fourteen people on a small jet died when the plane crashed in Brazil's northern Amazonas state on Saturday (September 16), the state's governor said.
Axar.az reports the accident occurred in the Barcelos province, some 400 km (248 miles) from the state capital, Manaus.
"I deeply regret the death of the 12 passengers and two crew members who were victims of the plane crash in Barcelos on Saturday," said Wilson Lima, Governor of Amazonas state on X, formerly known as Twitter.
"Our teams have been working from the outset to provide the necessary support. My sympathy and prayers go out to their families and friends."
The Manaus Aerotaxi airline issued a statement confirming that there had been an accident and that it was investigating but offering no details about deaths or injuries.
