In a heartbreaking turn of events this Monday, a young Nigerian lady lost her life while aboard an Egypt Air flight en route to London, United Kingdom.
This somber journey began as she departed Nigeria via Egypt Air MS 876 flight, departing from the Murtala Muhammad International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos.
Her destination was London, where she held a student visa. Her journey continued with a connecting flight via Egypt Air MS777 on the following day.
On Friday, a source closely connected to her family revealed that the airline had not provided any prior information about this tragic incident. Instead, the family received the distressing news from the consular office in Cairo, notifying them of her in-flight passing.
The lady’s remains were left in Cairo, the capital of Egypt, by the airline.
In this distressing time, the family seeks answers regarding the circumstances of her death and the process for repatriating her body to Nigeria.
As of now, Egypt Air has not yet responded to this incident. Sources within the airline mention that they are awaiting further details from Cairo.
