Israel's El Al airline resumes flights to Cairo

Aug. 7, 2011 10:29 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 7, 2011 5:17 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel's national airline El Al has resumed flights to Cairo after a five-month suspension.

Flights to Cairo were suspended after a popular uprising erupted in the country, ousting former President Hosni Mubarak.

El Al has been flying to the Egyptian capital for 30 years.

Officials at Cairo airport told a German news agency that a delegation from the Israeli embassy in Cairo visited the airport to review security procedures.

Air Sinai currently operates several flights each week between Cairo and Tel Aviv. The route mostly caters for Palestinians living in Israel and Israelis originally from Africa.
