Flights between Egypt and Russia are slated to resume again on April، the Russian airline Aeroflot announced on Tuesday.
According to the Russian news website Sputnik، planes will make three journeys a week after the Egyptian government approved of Russian security experts in Cairo International Airport to increase security with flights to Moscow.
In October 2015، Russia suspended civilian air traffic to Egypt after a bomb was detonated on a Russian charter plane over Sharm el-Sheikh، killing all 224 people on board. Russia qualified the incident as a terrorist attack.
Since the crash، Egypt has been implementing new، tighter security measures at all of its airports to meet the Russian demands necessary for the resumption of flights، with multiple visits from Russian security delegations to observe changes implemented by the government.
