Egypt - Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport received on Saturday the first Swiss Air flight after a five-year hiatus, a recent statement said.

The move comes on the heels of Russia’s resumption of direct flights to Egypt in August.

The flight, coming from Geneva, was carrying 62 passengers.

Head of the airport Nabil el-Maleh said the Geneva-Sharm el-Sheikh flight will be operated every Saturday.
