Storyline


More families of the Ethiopian airlines plane crash victims have arrived at the airport in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa with the hope of taking the bodies of their loved ones back home for burial.

They are yet to get an assurance from the airline that this is possible.

Torn by grief, a family of a victim said they has been seeking any information they can get to help understand how they can receive the remains of their loved ones.

"We just came here, we have been assisted by both the government here, and we are waiting for the embassies to come here," said a family member.

Their relative had both British and Kenyan citizenship.

"The British consular is coming at three o'clock and already the Kenyan embassy is also here," he said.

At this point, however, Ethiopian Airlines is not giving any promises as to if and when they will receive the remains.

A Boeing 737-8 MAX, bound for Nairobi, Kenya, crashed shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa Sunday morning local time, killing all 157 people on board, including eight crew members.

Memorial services are being planned by different denominations in the city to console the families of the people who were lost.

The investigation into the plane crash also continues as the international police agency Interpol joins other experts at the site.

In an attempt to salvage any little customer confidence it can, the airline's chief executive officer has been visiting the terminals in the airport to personally offer assurances of safety to the other travelers who are using the airline.

Experts say it is an isolated case although it may scare away passengers from the airline for a while.

The 73-year-old airline still commands the largest fleet and more routes than any other airline on the African continent.

As of Wednesday, several countries including Ethiopia, China, the U.S., Indonesia, Singapore, the United Kingdom and Germany have all moved to ground flights involving Boeing 737 Max 8 planes, citing safety concerns.
