Arrival in Moscow of the first plane with Russian tourists stranded in Hurghada

The Novosti agency announced the arrival in Moscow of the first plane with 350 Russian tourists stranded in the Egyptian resort of Hurghada.

The agency added that the flight was operated by Red Wings instead of iFly, which did not receive permission to fly.

Passenger Natalya said: “We are tired of the forced rest and are very happy that we finally returned home.”

Since last Thursday, iFly has canceled all of its flights to Egypt. And it became clear that the reason for this is related to the restrictions imposed by Russian airlines on flights in the airspace of Jordan. And the company began to work on finding alternative ways.

For its part, Rosaviatsiya said last Thursday that it was coordinating the route after iFly announced plans to fly through Syrian airspace. The next day, authorities pointed out that there was a serious flaw in the iFly flight’s documents. For this reason, the company has decided to cancel all its flights to Egypt until 19 December.
