The Kremlin Chief of Staff said Tuesday that the country's ban on flights to Egypt will continue for several months. This comes as a strike to Egypt's struggling tour industry but the decision was made due to the impossibility of revising Egypt's security system before then. This comes just over a week after a Russian plane came apart in air and crashed over the Sinai Peninsula just minutes after takeoff. All 224 people on board were killed. Officials believe a bomb on board was the cause.
Ivanov said, when asked how long the ban could last, that "I think for several months, as a minimum." He said that the security regime needs to be revised not only at Sharm el-Sheikh, but at airports at Hurghada and Cairo as well.
