Weather conditions over the eastern Mediterranean at the time of the EgyptAir Airbus A320 disappearance appear to have been good.

Satellite images from German aerospace laboratory DLR indicate little cloud in the vicinity of the Egyptian coast.

Meteorological data from Larnaca, Alexandria and Cairo airports at the time of the aircraft’s last point of contact indicate good visibility and benign weather conditions.

Egypt’s defence ministry states that it is co-operating with Greek counterparts in an air-and-sea search effort for the missing jet.

While the Egyptian civil aviation ministry says an emergency signal has been received by armed forces – some 90min after the aircraft was scheduled to arrive at Cairo – the nature of the signal, whether a locator beacon or other transmission, has yet to be confirmed.
