Egypt's military says the navy has found debris and passengers' belongings believed to be from the missing EgyptAir plane.

Wreckage from the missing EgyptAir plane has been found 290km north of the Mediterranean Sea city of Alexandria, the Egyptian army says on its official Facebook page.

"The Egyptian aircraft and ships also found [Friday] morning personal items of some passengers of the plane," the army says in the statement.

Three French aviation accident investigators and an Airbus technical expert have arrived in Cairo on Friday to join an Egypt-led probe into the disappearance.

The Airbus A320, travelling from Paris to Cairo, vanished early on Thursday with 66 people on board.

The reasons for the disappearance are currently unknown.

Search operations are under way to locate the jet's two black boxes.
