CAIRO – 29 October 2017: EgyptAir, the flag carrier airline of Egypt will resume its flights to Tokyo on Sunday morning, after almost four years of suspension. The company would organize one flight per week to Japan’s capital, unless more flights are required.
The Boeing 777-300ER, which is designed to accommodate more than 300 passengers, will be the aircrafts flying to Tokyo.
Many states have suspended flights to Egypt, following political incidents, including the two consecutive revolutions in 2011 and 2013.
After almost two years of travel suspension, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a press conference last September that Moscow will resume flights with Egypt this fall.
