    CAIRO (Sputnik) — The delegation consisting of two representatives are inspecting the measures taken by the local authorities and staff to ensure passenger safety in arrival and departure halls, as well as boarding inspections. In addition, the experts will examine the operations of the cargo terminal and procedures for transporting cargo on board aircraft departing for the British capital.

    A EgyptAir Airbus A320 plane, carrying 66 people, disappeared from radar screens over the Mediterranean Sea, 10 miles into Egyptian airspace on May 19. The plane was headed from Paris to Cairo.

    EgyptAir has said that the Egyptian Armed Forces have discovered the wreckage and personal items from flight MS804 some 180 miles off the coast of Alexandria.
