Aeroflot to resume flights to Cairo

Aeroflot will resume Airbus A320 services from Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport to Cairo International Airport three times a week from 11 April this year.

The Russian carrier stooped operating flights to Cairo in late 2015, when air links between Russia and Egypt were interrupted. A significant increase in security measures was required to reinstate flights between the two countries.

This requirement has been met on the Egyptian side, and on 4 January 2018 Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree permitting the resumption of regular air traffic.

Aeroflot flights will depart Moscow on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and depart from Cairo on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
