Passenger dies on flight from Germany to Egypt



A passenger died during a flight from Cologne-Bonn Airport to the resort of Hurghada in Egypt.

A spokesman for low-cost airline Eurowings said on Sunday that there was a medical emergency on the flight and a passenger received immediate medical attention from the cabin crew.

The spokesman said the crew decided to stop at a second potential airport. He added that at Klagenfurt Airport, the passenger immediately received urgent medical care.

"Unfortunately, the passenger passed away while receiving medical care, and Euro Wins expresses its sincere condolences and sympathy to his family," the spokesman added.

The spokesman did not respond to comment in more details, considering the privacy of the passenger.

According to the German newspaper "Bild", the man was 71 years old and from North Rhine-Westphalia.

Eurowings said there were 178 passengers on board the Airbus plane, in addition to four cabin crew members and two cockpit crew.

The plane took off from Klagenfurt Airport back to Cologne-Bonn Airport.

Accommodation was provided to the passengers in a hotel until the plane took off again and arrived in Hurghada this morning.
