Egypt extends suspension of international flights ‘until further notice’

Egypt extends the suspension of international flights at all its airports “until further notice,” according to a decree by Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly detailing the anti-coronavirus measures the country is taking following Eid Al-Fitr.

The North African country is just operating flights to repatriate its citizens abroad and has returned home at least 12,000 Egyptians so far.

The flight suspension has been in place since mid-March. Egypt’s airspace is open only to cargo and domestic flights
