Air France is maintaining its flights to Cairo, a spokesman for the airline said on Sunday, following the decision by rivals British Airways and Lufthansa to suspend flights to Egypt’s capital over security concerns.
British Airways, a unit of IAG said on Saturday it was suspending flights to Cairo for seven days “as a precaution” as it reviews the security of the airport in Cairo.
Germany’s Lufthansa later said it had cancelled its flights to Cairo from Munich and Frankfurt and would resume its connection on Sunday.
“In liaison with the French authorities and the local authorities in Egypt, Air France has decided to maintain its service to Cairo,” Air France’s spokesman said in a written statement sent to Reuters.
