EgyptAir to provide larger aircrafts for Cairo-London route after British Airways suspension: Source

An EgyptAir source said on Saturday the national carrier will allot larger models of its aircrafts for flights operating on the Cairo-London route to accommodate the increasing demand for tickets after British Airways suspended flights to Cairo for a week.

The source told Ahram Online that EgyptAir will continue to operate two flights to London daily.
 
Ahram Online also learned that a British inspection team had checked security at Cairo airport last week and that the results were "positive."
 
"The team praised security [measures] at the airport," the source added.
 
British Airways abruptly suspended flights to Cairo for a week from Saturday over security concerns, giving no details about what had prompted the move.
 
"We constantly review our security arrangements at all our airports around the world, and have suspended flights to Cairo for seven days as a precaution to allow for further assessment," it said in a statement.
 
The airline added that it would never operate an aircraft unless it was safe to do so.
 
When asked by Reuters 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."
