CAIRO, November 13. /TASS/. Air Egypt has received an official notification from the Russian authorities on the suspension of flights to Moscow as of November 14, Egyptian Civil Aviation Minister Mohammed Hossam Kamal said on Friday.
An official letter on the termination of flights was handed in to the head of Egypt Air’s office in Moscow.
The reservations made earlier will now be transferred to other airlines, Hossam Kamal said.
