The Department for Transport undertakes aviation security assessments at overseas airports. UK aviation security experts are working closely with their Egyptian counterparts on the ground. It is long standing government policy not to comment on security matters, however I can confirm that we continue to work in partnership with the Egyptian authorities and are grateful for their close engagement and support.

We look forward to achieving the return of flights to Sharm el-Sheikh when the situation allows.
