The jet that carried the bodies was met at the airport of Ufa by the relatives of the victims. The bodies were then taken to the Bashkir capital's Sovetskaya Square, which hosted a farewell ceremony and civil funeral rite.

Top leaders of Bashkiria and victims' relatives took turns in addressing the assembly. Even though the exact time of the funeral wasn't announced, the square was filled with people who had came to offer their condolences and lay flowers.
