Sinai peninsula is no longer in the Notice to Airmen warnings worldwide

Egypt's Civil Aviation Minister Sherif Fathy welcomed on Tuesday the decision issued by International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to lift the Sinai Peninsula from the Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) warnings worldwide.

The NOTAM that is a warning to alert aircraft pilots of potential hazards along flight routes or locations that can affect the safety of their flight.

Fathy said that the decision came as a result of efforts by the ministries of Foreign Affairs and Civil Aviation as well support from country members including African states in the ICAO.

Several international airliners stopped their flights above Sinai following the crash of a Russian Metrojet airliner in October and the death of all its passengers.
