No date set for resumption of Russian flights -Civil Aviation Ministry

A final date for the resumption of Russian flights to Egypt has yet to be determined, the Civil Aviation Ministry said in a statement cited by Al Masry Al Youm, but Cairo International Airport has set specific routes for Russia’s Aeroflot at the request of a Russian security delegation, the Egyptian Airport Company’s president told Al Borsa. The ministry’s statement comes after Cairo Airport’s Terminal 2 passed a key Russian security audit on which state-owned television channel Russia 24 aired a report, sources from the airport told the newspaper.

In other tourism news, Ukrainian tour operators are asking Egypt for incentives including lower ground handling fees so they can increase tourist inflows to the country. Senior Ukrainian officials promised the governors of South Sinai and the Red Sea that they would work to deliver 1 mn tourists to Egypt per annum during a tourism-centered press conference in Kiev, Al Borsa reports.
