CAIRO – 23 April 2021: Executive director of the Russian Association of Tour Operators Maya Lomidze revealed TASS Russian tour operators’ plans to launch charter flights to the Egyptian resorts in 7 to 14 days after air service is resumed.

In remarks to the Russian news agency on Friday, Lomidze said charter flights to the resorts of Sharm El-Sheikh and Hurghada will be resumed 7 to 14 days after the date of the resumption, which has not yet been announced.

In a phone call on Friday, Egypt's President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed on resuming all flights between the two countries' airports including to the resorts of Sharm El-Sheikh and Hurghada.

Sisi welcomed the step, hoping it pushes forward to further advancing bilateral relations between the two countries.

The decision to resume flights to the Egyptian resorts ends a hiatus that has lasted since 2015 over a Russian plane crash over Sinai, which killed all 224 people onboard.

Russia already resumed flights to Cairo in 2018.

Putin, during the phone call, affirmed that his country is keen to enhance cooperation with Egypt, praising Egypt’s achievements in the fields of economic and social development, besides the establishment of mega national projects.
 
Putin added that Russia is counting on Egypt's pivotal role in stabilizing its entire regional environment, Radi
