A British committee inspected security measures and facilities at Cairo International Airport on Monday, state news agency MENA reported.
 
The committee, which is focused on cargo and airplanes heading to London, will issue a final report to evaluate security at the airport at the conclusion of their three-day mission.
 
Airport sources noted that the committee comprises of five aviation security experts.
 
The committee observed security measures in airport terminals as well as for British Airways flight 154 and EgyptAir flight 777 that fly to Heathrow Airport in London.
 
A number of European airlines have banned flights to Egypt -- and Sharm El-Sheikh in particular -- over security concerns following an October 2015 crash of a Russian airliner in Sinai that resulted in the deaths of all 224 people on board. 
 
In June, British Airways announced that it would indefinitely extended its suspension of flights to Sharm El-Sheikh.
 
The UK government deployed experts to assess security procedures in Egyptian airports following the suspension of flights to and from Sharm El-Shiekh.
