(PM)- Lufthansa, Germany’s largest airline, has cancelled flights until tomorrow to Cairo due to security concerns. This comes just hours after British Airways suspended flights for the same concerns.
In a statement AviationAnalyst.co.uk, Lufthansa stated that “As safety is the number one priority of Lufthansa, the airline has temporarily suspended its flights to Cairo today as a precaution, while further assessment is being made.”
Yesterday, the UK’s Foreign Office stated that there is “a heightened risk of terrorism against aviation. Additional security measures are in place for flights departing from Egypt to the UK.”
Egypt’s Ministry of Civil Aviation states that they will increase the number of EgyptAir flights to London during the suspensions.
