On Tuesday, media reported that the crash had killed 77 people roughly 300 miles east of the capital, Algiers. Preliminary reports blamed the weather, a mix of wind and snow.
The flight had been headed toward the northeastern city of Constantine.
The plane crashed in a mountainous area in the Oum El Bouaghi province, according to the reports.
