Russia Bans Egypt Flights

The Russian government has banned its airlines from flying to Egypt because of concern over the downing of a passenger plane on Oct 31 that killed 224 Russians. The only airline flying the route had been Egypt Air, but until Egypt and its airlines can guarantee safety, Russia won’t allow the route, the Kremlin said.

According to the BBC, Russians make up close to one in three of all foreign tourists in Egypt and, in 2014 alone, three million Russian nationals stayed at Egyptian resorts.
