Egypt and Russian Federation resume direct flights after two-year suspension

Egypt and Russian Federation resume direct flights after two-year suspension”

The decision dealt Egypt's tourism industry a severe blow since the country relied heavily on the influx of Russian tourists.

The first flight from Cairo to Moscow will be carried out Thursday, they added.

In February of the following year, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi admitted that the plane was brought down by terrorists seeking to damage the country's tourism industry and relations with Russian Federation.

Egypt has worked to boost airport security since then, hoping to resume the flights in order to bolster its vital tourism sector which was decimated by the attack.

"It is surely a promising step and a very good beginning". Most of the passengers were Russian tourists.

Egypt to extend state of emergency for 3 months

Moscow and Cairo will discuss the gradual resumption of direct flights to other Egyptian cities after the resumption of direct flights between the two capital cities.

Moscow suspended flights after the 2015 attack, which killed all 224 people on board and was claimed by the extremist Islamic State group.

Russia will consider this summer where to conduct extra airport security checks in Egypt's Red Sea resorts of Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh, the Russian transport minister said Friday.

Six of these are controlled by Israel, while the seventh - at Rafah - is controlled by Egypt, which keeps it tightly sealed for the most part since the ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi in a 2013 military coup.
