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


The plane crash that occurred with the Russian passenger airliner Airbus A321 in the Sinai Peninsula, and later transferred to the category of a terrorist act, shook a wide circle of the public. As a result of the tragic crash of a Russian airliner, 224 people on board were killed, and as Russian and international experts managed to find out, it was the negligence of the Egyptian airport workers that led to the terrorist being able to carry explosives on board the aircraft, which already 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.

Earlier, the information and news portal, based on some data, has repeatedly reported that air communication with Egypt will be restored in the near future, however, the day before the Ministry of Transport made a statement, which indirectly indicates that the ban for Russian air carriers flights to Egypt will most likely be filmed only closer to autumn. Experts, in turn, note that various types of checks at Egyptian airports are deliberately delayed, and for this there are a large number of reasons, the main of which will be given below.


Artificial passenger capacity on domestic routes



Experts have an assumption that checks of 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 country's authorities, since the attraction of citizens definitely affects the replenishment of the budget. Based on the foregoing, it is logical to assume that the majority of the citizens of our country, believing that holidays in Egypt are unsafe, will prefer to spend their holidays in Russian resorts, in particular, in Sochi, on the Crimean peninsula, etc. The high season usually begins here. 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 be resumed no earlier than September-October of this 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.
