Prohibited Activities: why airlines are not allowed to fly to Egypt?

The plane crash that occurred with the Russian passenger airliner Airbus A321 on the territory of the Sinai Peninsula, and later transferred to the category of a terrorist act, stirred up a wide circle of the public. As a result of the tragic crash of a Russian airliner, 224 people aboard were killed, and as Russian and international experts managed to find out, it was the negligence of the Egyptian airport that led the terrorist to carry the explosives, which 23 minutes after takeoff killed hundreds of people.

Due to the fact that were later revealed multiple violations in the organization of security systems on the territory of the Egyptian airports, the Russian authorities, as well as the authorities of other countries temporarily suspended flights to the country, saying that after the security of air harbors of Egypt will restored, flights will be resumed.

Previously, the news and information portal, based on some data, has repeatedly reported that air traffic with Egypt will be restored soon, however, the day before the Ministry of Transport made a statement that indirectly indicates that the ban for Russian air carriers on flights to Egypt, most likely will be shot only closer to the fall. Experts, in turn, note that various types of checks at Egyptian airports are tightened specifically, and there are a large number of reasons for this, the main ones of which will be given below.

Artificial passenger capacity on domestic routes

Experts have a suggestion that checks at Egyptian airports are being delayed specifically in order to attract citizens of the country to rest at domestic resorts. At the moment, rest on the Black Sea coast is extremely beneficial for the authorities of the country, since the involvement of citizens definitely affects the replenishment of the budget. Based on the foregoing, it is logical to assume that the majority of citizens of our country, believing that rest in Egypt is not safe, would prefer to spend holidays at Russian resorts, in particular, in Sochi, on the Crimean peninsula, etc. High season here, as a rule, begins already from June and ends closer to the end of August, and, therefore, we can assume that according to this theory, flights to Egypt will not resume any earlier than September-October of the current year, as previously reported.

Cleaning in the field of civil aviation

The author of this article does not want to search for any conspiracies, let alone inspire such information to readers, however, more than six months ago in the media, there were reports that the Russian authorities made a statement that at the moment there is a large The number of different air carriers, which, in fact, prevent state companies from making a profit, and themselves act relatively inefficiently. Taking into account the fact that most of the major Russian airlines make flights to Egypt and only earn a huge profit in just a season, it can help to, in fact, force air carriers out of this sphere, in particular, this applies to Airline "Kogalymavia", which at the moment they want to declare bankrupt, while more than a year ago, this air carrier, which carried out a small number of flights, was considered one of the most effective in the country.

Anyway, at the moment, Russian experts are checking the air harbors of Egypt to ensure that there is an appropriate level of security, and an official report on this matter will be submitted in mid-May, at least as evidenced by official data. Taking into account the fact that additional time will be required to cancel the current ban, in fact, air transportation with Egypt can be resumed in July, however, it is possible that new circumstances may be opened that require more time, which, in fact, places cheap Russian holiday in Egypt is at stake.
