After spending 82 days in Mumbai’s Saifee hospital, Eman Ahmed’s final leg of her journey to Abu Dhabi has begun.
Eman Amhed has been shifted to Abu Dhabi on board an Egypt Air cargo freighter Airbus 300 on Thursday evening.
Sources in the Mumbai Airport International Limited (MAIL), who attended and provided the logistical support to Eman’s transfer say, the aircraft carrying Eman took off at 7:41pm from Mumbai airport to Abu Dhabi.
Speaking to My Medical Mantra, a ground staff on the condition of anonymity said, “On board there are three people who are traveling with Eman they are her sister Shaimaa Selim, a doctor and one more person from the Burjeel hospital medical team”
Sources say, the aircraft has been bifurcated in three compartments and was internally modified for Eman’s journey. When Eman had reached to airport, she was taken to the tarmac in a customized ambulance, in which she had come from Saifee hospital. As Egypt air flight was is cargo flight, it has hydraulic lifts to transfer the cargo. In Eman’s case the same hydraulic lifts was used but it was done with utmost care.
There were around 50 add people other than the Burjeel hospital team, who were present there to take care of the logistical support.
