Death of British national in Air Algerie crash

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office can sadly confirm that a UK national died in the recent Air Algerie crash. Our thoughts are with his family.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government


It is with deep regret that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office confirms the death of a British man onboard Air Algerie flight AH 5017.

We are providing consular support to his family at this tragic time, and we ask that the media respect the privacy of those grieving.
