MOSCOW, November 9. /TASS/. Audit of security at Egypt’s airports will take Russian experts at least two weeks, and after that flights to Egypt may be resumed, deputy head of Russia’s Association of Tourist Operators Dmitry Gorin said on air of the Russian News Service radio on Monday.
"At least two weeks are necessary to reconfirm security at the airports," he said. "This is not for sure, this is what we are hoping for."
All Russian tourists will return home from Egypt by November 20, he said.
Earlier, Russia’s Union of Tourism Industry told Russians not to hurry returning their vouchers for trips to Egypt for the New Year period, and to "try waiting for the flights to resume."
On Friday, November 6, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin supported recommendations of the national anti-terror committee to suspend flights to Egypt. The presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov explained the flights will be suspended not to end of investigation into crash of Kagalymavia’s plane, but until necessary security is provided.
On Sunday, November 8, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters two groups of Russian aviation experts had left for Egypt to audit security at that country’s main airports.
