CAIRO – 10 January 2018: Egypt and Russia agreed to implement six flights per week between Moscow and Cairo, Ria Novosti — a Russian news agency — quoted a source in the Egyptian Holding Company for Airports and Air Navigation (EHCAAN) as saying.
The schedule of the six flights is currently under study, according to the source. The flights are to be chartered by Russia’s Aeroflot and Egypt’s EgyptAir, as revealed by the source, with three flights per airline.
Flights between Cairo and Moscow are expected to begin in the first week of February, the source added.
On January 4, Russian President Vladimir Putin decreed to resume flights from Moscow to Cairo after a 26-month suspension, Sputnik news agency reported.
Russia suspended flights with Egypt following a plane crash over Sinai in late 2015. The Islamic State (IS) subsequently declared responsibility for blowing up the airliner.
