British Airways has cancelled all flights to Cairo for a week as a security “precaution”.
British Airways said that it would never operate an aircraft unless it was safe to do so.
When asked for more details about why flights had been suspended and what security arrangements the airline was reviewing, a spokeswoman responded: “We never discuss matters of security.”
Three Egyptian airport security sources told Reuters that British staff had been checking security at Cairo airport on Wednesday (July 17) and Thursday (July 18). They gave no further details.
