Published on : Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Russia and EgyptThe Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he has discussed with his counterpart in Egypt Abdel Fatah al-Sisi about speedy joint steps to resume direct passenger flights between the two countries, which has been halted since 2015.


With the historical visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Egypt on Monday, the tourism sector is expecting a major breakthrough in coming back of Russian aviation and tourists to Egypt as soon as possible.


The return of Russian tourism is a priority on Sisi’s agenda with Putin, as it represents a strong boost to the Egyptian-Russian cooperation.
The two most important issues to be discussed in this visit are the return of Russian tourism and the Dabaa nuclear power plant. The bilateral relations between Egypt and Russia need to extend the communication bridge, after an era of cold relations.
Russian aviation and tourism went for a halt after a Russian airplane was downed in Sinai on October 31, 2015.


Egyptian airports are now equipped with the latest security mechanisms, including x-ray scanning devices and storage of footage from security cameras, along with a fingerprint verification system for airport employees to control entry and exit of passengers and to check the identity of individuals going beyond the customs section and the airstrips.


Russian inspection committees inspected Egyptian airports in the wake of resuming direct flights as soon as possible. Sisi and Putin will discuss issues of common interest along with two countries’ cooperation in various fields, most notably in commercial, military and transportation.


Both leaders will attend the inauguration of Egypt’s first nuclear power plant, which is located at the Mediterranean city of Dabaa in Marsa Matrouh.
