EgyptAir agreed with insurance companies to compensate each family of the victims of flight MS804 with $25,000, chairman and CEO of EgyptAir holding company Safwat Mosallam said on Monday.

The compensation is "temporary," as the full amount will be offered once the settlement with insurance companies is completed in accordance with international insurance standards, Mosallam said in press statements. 

The families will receive the compensation as soon as the inheritors have been identified and the inheritance announcement issued.

The cabinet will issue death certificates for the victims in the coming 48 hours, Mosallam said.

The insurance company created an e-mail address -- – so that the victims’ families can be in direct contact with them, EgyptAir said in a statement on Saturday.

EgyptAir flight MS804 crashed in the Mediterranean Sea on 19 May, killing all 66 people on board.

The flight's two black boxes have been retrieved from the sea, though the data has yet to be unloaded.
