British Airways will resume flights to Cairo following a week-long suspension over security concerns.

British Airways had suspended flights to Cairo on Saturday for seven days “as a security precaution” as it reviewed security at the Cairo airport. Egypt’s aviation ministry said on Sunday that British Airways took the move without consulting Egyptian authorities.

Germany’s Lufthansa also suspended flights to Cairo on Saturday but resumed them a day later.

Other airlines continued to operate flights to Cairo.
