Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 24
By Elena Kosolapova - Trend:
Kazakhstan will resume air travel to the Arab Republic of Egypt next month, the Kazakh Ministry for Investment and Development reported Feb. 24.
Kazakhstan-based SCAT company will operate direct flights from Almaty to Sharm el-Sheikh starting from March 2016.
Additionally, Fly Egypt will launch a regular biweekly flight to Kazakhstan when its application is approved by the Civil Aviation Committee of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
The Civil Aviation Committee, the Kazakhstan Tourist Association and the Egyptian aviation security agency have recently given green light to resumption of air travel between Kazakhstan and Egypt after detailed inspection.
Kazakhstan suspended air service with Egypt after the A321 plane of Russia's Kogalymavia crashed over the Sinai Peninsula in late October 2015.
The disaster, in which 217 passengers and seven crew members lost their lives, is believed to be the deadliest aviation disaster in the history of Russia and the Soviet Union.
