OREANDA-NEWS. The airlines of the Lufthansa Group have suspended their commercial flight operations to and from the Sinai Peninsula until further notice. The precautionary action has been taken in view of the current Sinai situation. The Lufthansa Group will coordinate all its further actions in this regard in close consultation with the authorities. The action affects two planned weekly flights to and from Sharm el-Sheikh, operated by Edelweiss and Eurowings. 

The Lufthansa Group airlines will also be working closely with their governments’ foreign affairs departments and the tour operators involved to look after customers currently vacationing in the Sharm el-Sheikh region and arrange their return flights home.   The Lufthansa Group’s member airlines have been avoiding the airspace over Sinai since last Saturday (31 October). Cairo continues to be served, and is not affected by these actions.
