Egypt, Russia resume flights halted after 2015 attack

Egypt to temporarily open Rafah border crossing days after 'negotiations with Hamas'

Egypt and Russian Federation have resumed direct flights after a halt of over two years.

Russian Federation and Egypt have resumed direct flights after a more than two-year hiatus, officials said Thursday.

The first flight Cairo-Moscow will carry out the Egyptian airline, EgyptAir April 12.

Moscow suspended flights after the 2015 attack claimed by the Islamic State terror group, in which an A321 plane belonging to Russian charter company Metrojet crashed into the Sinai desert on its way from the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to St Petersburg, killing 224 passengers and crew.

The decision dealt Egypt's tourism industry a severe blow since the country relied heavily on the influx of Russian tourists.

In February of the following year, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi admitted that the plane was brought down by terrorists seeking to damage the country's tourism industry and relations with Russian Federation.

Russia's Aeroflot airliner said in a statement that both the Russian and Egyptian airlines would offer daily flights from June 12 to July 2 to cope with heavy demand, referring to the increasing demand expected ahead of the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup that will be held in Russia in mid-June.
