BRITISH Airways resumes flights to Cairo on Friday after suspending its services for a week citing security concerns.
The airline said in a statement it had “reviewed security arrangements” and would restart flights.
German airline Lufthansa also cancelled flights to Cairo on Saturday but resumed services one day later, the BBC stated.
BA stated, “Following a thorough assessment of the security arrangements” its services from Cairo would resume on July 26.
BBC said the airline provided little detail on its decision to suspend flights, and the move was criticised by an executive of state-owned EgyptAir as “without a logical reason.”
It stated the country’s aviation minister Younis Al-Masry, also expressed “displeasure” at the decision.
