Egypt welcomes first Russian flight after 6-year hiatus

ArabFinance: Sharm El Sheikh International Airport has welcomed on Monday the first flight coming from the Russian capital Moscow, according to a statement by the Ministry of Civil Aviation.

The flight, operated by Rossiya Airlines, carried 517 tourists on board, the statement highlighted.

The Governor of South Sinai Khaled Fouda and the Russian Ambassador to Cairo Georgiy Borisenko were present at the airport to welcome the tourists.

Moreover, Chairman of the Egyptian Airports Company Ahmed Mansour and Director of Sharm El-Sheikh Airport Nabil El-Mallah were present at the airport, the statement added.

In the same context, Minister of Civil Aviation Mohamed Manar has welcomed the Russian flights to Sharm El Sheikh International Airport and Hurghada International Airport.

The Russian tourism has been resumed in Egypt due to the great efforts done by the civil aviation sector over the past years, Manar stressed.

In October 2015, Russia suspended direct flights to Egyptian airports due to the crash of a Russian passenger jet in the Sinai Peninsula, killing all 224 passengers and crew on board.
