Ahram Online, , Saturday 12 Jan 2019

A Korean Air flight arrived at Cairo International Airport from Seoul on Saturday for the first time in seven years, state-run MENA agency reported.

Representatives from the tourism ministry and the Egyptian tourism authority received 209 tourists from Seoul’s Incheon International Airport, welcoming them with roses and souvenirs.

South Korea’s flagship airline suspended flights in 2012 due to Egypt’s political unrest.

The trip is one of six charter flights from Seoul scheduled for January and February.
