Airline Industry: EgyptAir flight from Paris feared to have crashed into Mediterranean

Egypt’s foreign ministry has exchanged condolences with France over what it called the “fall” of an EgyptAir flight carrying 66 people from Paris to Cairo.

The statement was the first official admission that those on board were likely to have died.

The plane was carrying people from multiple nationalities including 30 Egyptians and 15 French nationals.
EgyptAir flight MS804 departed Paris’s Charles de Gaule airport at 23.09 heading for Cairo disappeared from radar.

There is some confusion over whether the missing plane sent a distress signal that was picked up by the Egyptian military.

EgyptAir said in a statement earlier that a signal had been received by the army more than an hour after the plane was due to land. The army denied in a statement receiving any message.

The aircraft “crashed” off the Greek island of Karpathos in Egyptian airspace, reports AFP citing an airport source.
