Egypt assures return of its Ethiopian jet crash victims to homeland
EgyptAir confirms that company does not have Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets
Published in Daily News Egypt on 12 - 03 - 2019

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry is following all the needed procedures to ensure the return of the remains six Egyptian victims killed in the Ethiopian jet crash near Addis Ababa earlier this week, a Tuesday ministry's statement stated.
The Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 crashed on Sunday six minutes after taking off from Addis Ababa. All 149 passengers of 33 nationalities and eight crew members onboard were killed.
The ministry revealed the names of the victims who are Doaa Abdel Salam, Susan Mohamed, Naser Fathy, Ashraf Abdel Hakeem, Abdel Hameed Farag, and Esmat Abdel Sattar.
Furthermore, the ministry stated that the rescue operations would last to the end of this week, noting that identifying the victims might take at least three weeks.
In addition to the six Egyptian casualties, the victims also included two Moroccans, 18 Canadians, 32 Kenyans, and others from France, the United Kingdom, China, the United States, and Ethiopia, according to the Ethiopian Airlines' CEO.
In the aftermath of the crash, airlines in several countries, including China and Australia, suspended the use of Boeing's new 737 MAX 8 aircraft over concerns about its safety.
Meanwhile, EgyptAir asserted in a statement that the company's fleet does not include any Boeing's new 737 MAX 8 jets.
Furthermore, it expressed its deepest condolences to the families of the victims.
The last major accident involving also an Ethiopian Airlines passenger jet was in 2010, when a Boeing 737-800 crashed shortly after it left Beirut and killed 90 passengers onboard.
