The Boeing 747 cargo plane, which departed from Hong Kong, was supposed to make a stopover at Manas, about 25km (15 miles) from the capital city Bishkek, en route to Istanbul. The crash took place at around 7:30 a.m. local time (01:30 GMT).
BBC noted that although the cause of the accident has not been confirmed yet, investigations are considering the area's poor visibility, noting that the fog was thick at that time.
Images of the alleged crash site that made round across social media showed fire and smoke rising from the debris of the damaged establishments.
The crash site area spans 335 meters and 75 meters.
