When exactly are flights with Russia resuming?

When exactly are flights with Russia resuming? There are widely varying reports and information coming out on when exactly flights with Russia are coming. Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport added the Cairo-Moscow air route to its roster on 22 March. EgyptAir, has the first available flight taking off tomorrow. Russian airline Aeroflot still has no direct flights to Cairo listed on its website. This comes as sources tell Sputnik Arabic that flights will resume on 18 March. EgyptAir and Aeroflot employees have received permits to work at the Domodedovo and Cairo International airports, respectively, an unidentified official tells Sputnik.

Did Egypt cave to Russian demands to have their security present at our airports? It appears so, according to the Russian state paper. Sources tell Sputnik that Egyptian authorities have signed off on the presence of Russian security at the terminal dedicated to Russian flights.
