Russia-Egypt charter flights to resume soon

Charter flights from Russia to Egyptian resort towns are expected to resume in the coming days, the Interfax news agency has reported.

Earlier on Friday, the media outlet cited the head of Aeroflot as saying the dicision was made on the resumptions after a years-long hiatus.

Flights to the Egyptian resort destinations of Sharm al-Sheikh and Hurghada were suspended after a Russian passenger plane crashed in Sinai in October 2015, killing 224 passengers and crew.

The aircraft had been taking Russian holiday makers home from Sharm el-Sheikh to Saint Petersburg in 2015, when it broke up over the Sinai Peninsula, killing everyone on board.

A group affiliated with Islamic State militants claimed responsibility for the crash.
