An EgyptAir flight from Paris to Cairo vanished from radar screens in the early hours of this morning, with 66 people on board.
Flight MS804 went missing over the eastern Mediterranean, immediately after entering Egyptian airspace. EgyptAir says it received a distress signal before the Airbus A320 disappeared.
As well as seven crew members and three security personnel reported to be on board, 56 passengers included three children.
The passengers’ nationalities are 30 Egyptians, 15 French, two Iraqis and one each from the UK, Canada, Belgium, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Algeria, Sudan and Chad.
The flight departed Charles de Gaulle at 23:09 local time and was scheduled to arrive in the Egyptian capital soon after 03:00 local time. Contact was lost at 02:45. Greece has joined Egyptian armed forces in the search operation.
