Sharm El-Sheikh Welcomes First Flight From Prague In Almost Two Years

Your Gate to Sharm El Sheikh

The Czech Republic renewed commercial flights to the Egyptian tourist resort of Sharm El-Sheikh on Monday, with a Czech flight touching down at the city’s airport, the first since the downing of a Russian passenger plane in October 2015.

A Russian passenger jet crashed in Sinai in late October 2015, killing all 224 people on board, most of whom were holidaymakers.

Russia halted flights to Egypt since the incident, which security officials identified as a terrorist attack.

A number of other countries also suspended flights after the incident. Germany, Poland and Turkey have since resumed flights; the UK, formerly a major source of tourists to Egypt, has not done so.

More flights to by Sharm El-Sheikh may follow, assuming there is sufficient demand from Czech tourists.
