Aeroflot pilots landed on the runway from which another plane was about to take off

At Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, an incident occurred with an Aeroflot Airbus A320 flying from Saratov to Moscow, which was able to avoid a tragic outcome thanks to the professionalism and timely actions of the dispatcher. During preparations for landing, despite receiving a command from the dispatcher to occupy the right runway (RWY) 06, which was one of two operating at that moment, the crew mistakenly continued to move towards the central runway. This data is provided by the "Base".

At the final stage of the approach, five kilometers before landing, the controller re-authorized landing on the specified runway, waiting for the plane to adjust its course. However, the pilots did not perform the required maneuver. Realizing the danger of the situation, the dispatcher promptly prohibited other aircraft from crossing the central runway, which the Aeroflot aircraft had incorrectly entered. Thanks to this decision, the plane was able to land safely.
