CAIRO, September 11. /TASS/. Russian experts have highly assessed the modernization of Cairo International Airport and security measures taken there, Masrawy information portal reported on Sunday citing the airport’s administration.
"The delegation that finished its inspection has highly assessed the obvious evolution of the airport’s security system, as well as modern equipment and systems for checking passengers and luggage in the new second terminal which will open in the next few weeks after reconstruction," the portal said. "Experts expressed their satisfaction with the security system, noted considerable progress in coordinating work between different control services in comparison to what they saw during their last visit several months ago," the portal added.
Russian specialists plan to make another inspection in Cairo after the second terminal opens. It is expected to service mostly Russians after air traffic between the two countries is resumed after being suspended following the air crash of the Russian A321 plane over Sinai. In particular, the second terminal will most likely service Russian air carrier Aeroflot’s flights.
Five Russian technical specialists inspected security systems and new equipment at the Cairo airport during their visit to the Egyptian capital on September 7-10.
