EgyptAir will resume its flights to Moscow on Thursday after more than two years and half suspension, well-placed sources at Cairo Airport said on Friday.
Passengers will board the flights from Terminal 2 and arrive at Terminal 3, the sources said.
A Russian security company will follow up security measures of any flight – either EgyptAir or Russia's Aeroflot airline - heading for Moscow.
The two airlines will bear the cost of the security company.
EgyptAir has previously said it will operate three weekly flights to the Russian capital using its top notch Boeing aircraft B737/800NG.
Flights will be on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Russia's Aeroflot airline has announced resuming Moscow-Cairo flights.
Aeroflot has launched sales of tickets on March 13.
Aeroflot flights will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
From June 12 to July 2, the flights will become daily due to higher demand during the World Cup, Aeroflot noted.
Russia suspended regular air service with Egypt after a Russian A321 passenger jet owned by Russia’s Kogalymavia air carrier (flight 9268) bound to St. Petersburg crashed on October 31, 2015 some 30 minutes after the takeoff from Egypt’s Sharm el-Sheikh. The plane was carrying 217 passengers and seven crewmembers.
