British Airways Resumes Cairo Flights After Brief Suspension

British Airways has resumed flights to Cairo nearly seven days after abruptly cancelling services due to security concerns. According to The Guardian the airline announced on Thursday (25/7/19) that it had “reviewed security arrangements”. As a result it was satisfied that there was no cause to continue grounding flights to the Egyptian capital. British Airways cancelled its daily flight to Cairo on Saturday July 20th. This in response to a security assay by the carrier’s own Cairo-based team. “The safety and security of our customers and crew is always our priority,” BA added at the time. “We would never operate an aircraft unless it was safe to do so.” Lufthansa cancelled its Cairo routes on the same day due to what its spokeswoman called an “unclear security situation in Cairo”. The German flag carrier resumed flights the following day. Meanwhile, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) continue to warn of a heightened risk of terror attacks in the area.
