Snake on a plane! Fake news says EgyptAir

Posted 18 March 2018 · Add Comment

EgyptAir has denied a news release that has been posted by several news websites stating finding a cobra snake aboard its flight to Kuwait today.

 The Egyptian national carrier said it "denounces attempts of some news sites trying to defame its leading status by reposting false and old stories that date back to the year 2012."
In an official statement the Cairo airline said it  urges the media to coordinate with its media centre to "assure the robustness and accuracy of evidentiary news for maintaining transparency and credibility before public opinion."
Egypt’s flag carrier also added it would be taking all legal actions to ensure its rights against any entity aiming to defame its status.
