Two Russian airline companies have requested from the authorities the permission to make regular flights to Egypt.
The “IrAero” plans to fly from Omsk to Hurgada and Sharm-el-Sheikh. The Pegas Fly plans to fly to the same cities, as well as to Cairo from the Zhukovsky International Airport.
The Association of Russian Tour Operators has announced that once the flights will be resumed, there will be not less than 500 charter flights to Egypt from Russia. This is comparable amount with the current volume of charter flights to Turkey.
