British Airways resumes fights to/from Cairo: spokesperson



British Airways (BA) will resume flights from London to Cairo and from Cairo to London starting July 26, according to a BA spokesperson.

He added that the first flight will carry 200 passengers on a Boeing Dreamliner airplane, arriving at Cairo International Airport at 11:15 PM.

The first flight from Cairo to London will arrive at 8:00 AM.

British Airways suspended all British Airways flights on July 20 from London to Cairo International Airport for seven days as a security precaution.

Egyptian officials claimed that the suspension decision was political and aimed at harming Egypt following the country’s successful organization of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2019 and the tourist vogue seen during July.
