“According to the State Aviation Service, Ukrainian planes can continue flying to airports of Egypt. Security has been stepped up there and planes have been recommended to fly around Sinai,” Pavel Klimkin, Ukrainian Foreign Minister, said in an interview with Podrobnosti Nedeli talk show aired by Inter TV Channel.
According to Klimkin, all flights continue to operate as normal but if there is a danger the Ukrainian authorities are prepared to go ahead with an evacuation plan they have developed.
“We are ready for that. We are also in contact with all tourist operators so we could alert them to a possible danger within minutes,” said the Minister.
It was reported earlier that Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk ordered that all flights to Egypt be suspended following a crash of the Russian Airbus A321 if threat to Ukrainian citizens’ lives is confirmed.
Russia has suspended all flights to Egypt until due security is ensured there.
