Iran and Egypt intend to restore air traffic.

Iran and Egypt intend to restore air traffic.

Iran and Egypt intend to restore direct flights between the two countries in a month and a half, the Iranian Tasnim agency reported on Sunday.

“The first Iranian tourists will leave for Egypt within the next 45 days. It is symbolic that the first flight will be carried out directly between Tehran and Cairo,” the report says.


It is noted that after both countries restored the work of consulates, Iraq ceased to play the role of an intermediary country in flights.


Back in May, the Sultan of Oman, Haytham bin Tarek Al Said, made an official two-day visit to Tehran, where, during a meeting with Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, he announced Egypt’s desire to resume relations with Iran. The Supreme Leader responded by saying that Iran “welcomes this position and has no objection to this.” After that, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi instructed the country’s Foreign Ministry to take up the issue of restoring relations with Egypt.
