Egypt curfew times disrupt flights
January 31st, 2011 by elisa

The trouble in Egypt is severely affecting flights at the moment. One BMIflight to Cairo had to turn back to Heathrow on Saturday after the Egyptian authorities changed curfew times. All BMI flights between Heathrow and Cairo on Sunday were also cancelled.
British Airways gave customers due to travel to Cairo today the chance to cancel or defer their trip. They are still operating flights, however schedules have changed to suit the new curfews. BA also put an extra flight on over the weekend to return passengers home early.
Most UK tourists take their holidays in Red Sea resorts like Sharm El Sheikh, hundreds of miles away from the trouble in the capital. Operators are stressing that travel to these areas is safe, although most trips to the capital have been cancelled.
The Foreign Office have issued a warning however, that travellers should avoid all but essential travel to Cairo, Luxor, Alexandria and Suez.
