British Airways has cancelled all flights to the Egyptian capital Cairo for a week as a security precaution.
Passengers about to board a British Airways flight to Cairo from London’s Heathrow Airport were told that it was cancelled – and that there would be no alternative flights for a week. The airline did not specify what the security issue was.
A spokesman for Cairo airport told news reporters that the airport was yet to be notified by the airlines of any such changes.
German airline Lufthansa also cancelled flights to Cairo yesterday. However, flights to the city would resume today.
