Sokolov said about the possibility of the resumption of flights to Egypt on New Year's Eve
“The decision of the resumption of air links with Egypt will be concluded after the Egyptian side will complete all the work in the field of the implementation of a comprehensive security plan”, - said the Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov.
We are actively cooperating now with the Egyptian side in implementing a comprehensive security plan concerning the three largest airports in Egypt. It is implemented mainly. There were solitary events to do, the main of which is the installation of the automatic system of biometric access control of personnel into the "clean zone"- the minister said.
"If the Egyptian colleagues will call us at the end of December, our group will quickly finish the work within a week, prepare a report, then will report to the leadership of the country - the permission may be received on the eve of New Year holidays. All another is speculation, the ball is at the Egypt side", - he said.
