The data files from the crashed EgyptAir flight MS804 were sent back to Egypt on Tuesday, after one of the flight data recorder was fixed in France, the Egyptian investigation committee said in a statement.

The data files from the flight data recorder (FDR) have been transferred to Cairo to extract and analyze the information at the Central Department for Aviation Accidents of the Ministry of Civil Aviation of Egypt, according to the statement.

The process may take several days to ensure the accuracy of information, it added.

EgyptAir flight MS804 spiralled down into the Mediterranean on May 19 on its way from Paris to Cairo, killing all 66 people on board.

Earlier this month, the investigation committee said the hired vessel, Lethbridge John, found the crashed jet’s cockpit voice recorder (CVR), yet it was damaged.

The recorders arrived in Paris from Cairo on Monday to remove salt deposits. Earlier on Tuesday, the committee annouced that the flight data recorder had been “successfully repaired.”
