EgyptAir Cargo managed on Friday 10/2/2017 to fly a 500-kg Egyptian woman, believed to be the world's heaviest woman, to India for a surgery.

 

Eman Ahmed, 36, was moved to a medically equipped vehicle to the airport where she was taken to a freighter aircraft.

 

The flight number MSX5521 took off on Friday from Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab Airport, said Chairman of EgyptAir Holding Company Safwat Mosallam.

 

A private cargo flight was operated to take the patient from her hometown to avoid difficulty of movement and going through the plane’s door, Mosallam said.

 

The plane has also been equipped with the necessary tools to provide all needed heath care for her until she arrives in India, head of EgyptAir cargo Basem Jawhar said.
