British Airways to resume Cairo flights today after security review

British Airways will resume a daily service from London Heathrow to Cairo today (26 July) after services to the Egyptian city were suspended for a week because of security concerns.

The airline said in a statement that it had “reviewed security arrangements” and would restart flights, although it did not explain the exact security concern which led to the suspension.

“”Following a thorough assessment of the security arrangements, we are pleased that our service to and from Cairo will resume from 26 July,” BA added.

On 20 July, British Airways said it would halt flights from Heathrow Airport to Cairo International Airport for seven days.

BA provided little detail on its decision to suspend flights, and the move was reportedly criticised by an executive of state-owned EgyptAir.
