Dutch aircraft makes emergency landing at Cairo airport to save passenger
Ahram Online, Sunday 20 Jan 2013
A Dutch flight on its way from Hurghada to Amsterdam Sunday morning landed at the Cairo airport just half an hour after it took off, when a passenger on board suddenly began to faint.
The charter aircraft, boarded mostly by tourists, landed at Cairo Airport's transit area while the passengers waited in the transit lounges.
The sick passenger was taken to a nearby hospital and once she recovered, three and a half hours later, she and the other passengers boarded the plane to the Netherlands.
