Flights to Cairo Suspended Indefinitely; Travelers Uncertain
After tomorrow all DL CAI (Egypt) traffic suspended due to civil unrest. Its last flight departs from Cairo on January 29, 2011. However, reports indicate that flights on other airlines in and out of Cairo will be suspended indefinitely as well.
Meanwhile, FlyerTalk members who have planned to be in Egypt in the near future are understandably concerned due to the uncertainty and potentially dangerous political unrest currently developing:
- Protests in Cairo and planned trip!
- Decided to cancel vacation to Egypt, what are my options?
- Is Egypt a mess right now?
- Egypt shuts down access to Internet and all mobile phone services
Hotel properties in Egypt, such as the Sheraton Cairo, are also experiencing abnormal operations due to the civil unrest.
