Russian airline Sirius Aero receives permission for Cairo-Moscow flights

Reports have emerged that Russian airline Sirius Aero has received permission to establish a flight route between Moscow and Cairo, according to Russian aviation outlet ATO.Ru (Russian). Air Leisure is also looking into offering direct flights between Moscow and Luxor once air travel between Russia and Egypt officially resumes, Chairman Mohamed Mounir tells Al Mal. The air carrier has yet to settle on the number of weekly flights it will offer, or when it will launch the new route. Russia and Egypt had signed a security protocol in December allowing the resumption of direct flights between Moscow and Cairo, but Russian Deputy Prime Minister said last week that charter flights to Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada is not possible yet. Other destinations in Egypt, including Luxor, are not banned by Russia.
