Airport firm apologizes to deceased family for transportation inconvenience

(MENAFN) Aircraft ground conduct benefactor Swissport International gave an apology for being unsuccessful in delivering a coffin with a body of a dead Irish resident from an airplane at Dublin Airport, which was then flown back to Greece, compelling the deceased family to re-organize the funeral.

Swissport stated in a declaration to the Irish Independent on Sunday that “we are deeply sorry for the family’s experience at such a difficult time and did everything we could to ensure things were resolved as quickly as possible.” The firm stated that an internal probe is taking place, and also assured to “make sure lessons are learned.”

In line with the Irish Independent, the occurrence happened on May 22 with the corps of a man who passed away overseas. His remains were transported on an Aegean Airlines aircraft from Greece to Dublin, where his family was waiting with a funeral vehicle outside the airport. However, the casket was not removed from the airplane because of its “misload” and was forced to fly back to Greece.
