El Al likely to stop weekly flight services to Cairo

Israel’s national flag carrier recently indicated that it is looking at various options to end its flights to Egypt. The airline in a statement said that it is seeking to immediately stop El Al flights to Cairo, which is being operated on a weekly basis.

If the airline finally stops the sale of El Al flights tickets and end its weekly flight to Cairo, this will be for the first time that airline will discontinue its flight operations since the signing of the 1979 peace treaty with Egypt.

Media reports quoted El Al’s Chief Executive Officer Eliezer Shakedi as saying to Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman that it is now not economically viable to continue with the flights to Cairo further because of the high operational costs and heavy security requirements involved.
El Al has been operating flights between Tel Aviv and Cairo for more than three decades now, with at least one flight every week.

However, ever since the unrest in Egypt following the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak in February 2011 the airline decided to operate flights between the two cities on a reduced basis.
