Egypt makes rapid progress in resolving safety complaints for Russian flights — ministry

UFA, October 7. /TASS/. Egyptian authorities are making rapid progress in resolving complaints on Russian flights safely accommodated, Transport Minister Maksim Sokolov said Friday.

"Egyptian colleagues have been making very rapid progress in resolving all issues regarding security enforcement. I think next year we will fully get back to the passenger flow we used to have (before suspension of flights to Egypt and Turkey - TASS)," he said.

On Thursday Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said he hoped that air travel with Egypt would be restored before the end of this year. He also said that Egypt still had to install certain safety equipment, which had already been ordered, but still needs to be delivered.

As was reported earlier the issue of resuming air traffic between Russia and Egypt may be discussed at the meeting chaired by Dvorkovich on October 10.
