Turkish Airlines resuming flights to Egypt’s Sharm el-Sheikh
aTP- Arab tourism portal News – Reuters – CAIRO -Turkish Airlines will resume flights next month to Sharm el-Sheikh, nearly a year after they were suspended following the bombing of a Russian jet which took off from the Egyptian resort city, the Turkish Embassy in Cairo said yesterday.
“Turkish Airlines will be the first of the companies that halted flights after Oct. 31, 2015, to resume activities,” the embassy said in a statement.
It said the airline would operate four flights a week. British and Russian governments banned their airlines from flying to Sharm el-Sheikh, a popular winter sun destination, because of concerns about security at the airport after the October 2015 bombing which killed all 224 people on board.
