British Airways Brings Back Cairo Service

A week after it suddenly suspended its service to the Egyptian capital of Cairo over security concerns, British Airways has said that it is reinstating these flights. The announcement comes following a thorough assessment of security arrangements by the airline. Flights resumed as of July 26th.

Last weekend, British Airways suddenly suspended flights to the Egyptian capital over security concerns at Cairo International Airport (CAI), but as Sky News reports, the carrier has just announced that it is reinstating this service.

The cancellations were initially carried out as a precautionary measure and, commenting last week to Sky News, a spokesperson for BA was quoted by the outlet as saying, “We constantly review our security arrangements at all our airports around the world, and have suspended flights to Cairo for seven days as a precaution to allow for further assessment. The safety and security of our customers and crew is always our priority, and we would never operate an aircraft unless it was safe to do so.

The airline, however, declined to offer any further clarification regarding its decision to cancel service.

However, commenting on the announcement that it would restore service on Thursday, the carrier said, “Following a thorough assessment of the security arrangements, we are pleased that our service to and from Cairo will resume from Friday 26 July.
