Sharm el-Sheikh: UK should end flight ban.

Sat Jan 12, 2019 11:27 am

In the UK the Egyptian ambassador has gone public on radio saying that he wants the government to lift the ban on direct flights.

After the Russian crash numbers dropped from 900,000 to around 230,000 a year and have not recovered. His point is that the Egyptian government have been working very hard with the British security forces to upgrade airport security since then and now is the time to lift the ban. It has for sure hit them in the pocket badly.

If the security situation there has been adequately resolved, then yes it should be lifted.

The fact that is hasn't makes me wonder what still needs to be accomplished?
