It was indeed a very emotional moment for Saudia cabin crew as the bodies of their colleagues who were killed in the recent Sri Lanka attacks finally arrive home, at the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The bodies of Cabin crew Ahmed Zain Jaafari and Hani Maged Othman were greeted by their tearful colleagues at the King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah.
Saudia flight attendant Hajer Aziz who was injured in the attacks also returned home in a wheelchair was welcomed and greeted by family and colleagues.
Pictures showed Aziz arriving in a wheelchair before tearfully hugging two children. She was then taken from the airport in an ambulance.
The string of suicide bombings on Easter Sunday targeted three churches and four hotels, killing 253 people.
On Tuesday, the Saudia director general Saleh Bin Nasser Al-Jasser praised the two dead crew for their service to the company and country.
“Myself, the entire management team and all of the team members of Saudi Arabia Airlines are with very heavy hearts, filled with deep sorrow,” Al-Jasser said.
