Russian Charter Flights to Egypt to Resume in Coming Days -Ifx

Hong Kong, China - December 18, 2013: Aeroflot Russian Airlines Airbus A330 parked at Hong Kong International Airport. It is the flag carrier of the Russian Federation.

Russian charter flights to Egyptian resorts are expected to resume in the coming days after a years-long hiatus, the Interfax news agency cited the boss of Aeroflot as saying on Friday.

Flights to resort destinations Sharm al-Sheikh and Hurghada were suspended after a Russian passenger plane crashed in Sinai in October 2015, killing 224 people.

The plane had been taking Russian holiday makers home from Sharm el-Sheikh to St Petersburg in 2015, when it broke up over the Sinai Peninsula, killing all on board. A group affiliated with Islamic State militants claimed responsibility.
