The Russian Transport Ministry plans to send another group of airport safety experts to Egypt shortly with the aim of restoring flights between the countries, Minister Maxim Sokolov said Wednesday.

"We will go [to Egypt] with another inspection in the near future. We are working on this together with the Egyptian counterparts," Sokolov told reporters.

Russia suspended all flights to and from Egypt last fall after a Russian A321 plane crashed in the Sinai desert on 31 October while flying from the resort city of Sharm Ell-Sheikh to St. Petersburg.

All 224 people on board died in what has become the largest civil aviation disaster in Russian history.
