KLM Suspends Flight Operations to Cairo, Egypt
For economic reasons, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has decided to temporarily suspend flights to Cairo, Egypt with effect from 8 January 2017.
The airline cited the devaluation of the Egyptian pound and the decision of the Central Bank of Egypt to impose restrictions on the transfer of foreign currency out of Egypt as the reason for the suspension.
According to the airline, the final flight to Cairo will depart from Amsterdam on 6 January 2017, with the final flight returning to Amsterdam on 7 January 2017.
After suspension of the KLM service to Cairo, Air France -KLM will maintain its presence in the Egyptian capital, with Air France operating six weekly flights out of Paris.
Passengers with reservations to travel from Amsterdam to Cairo after 8 January 2017 will be rebooked to the most suitable alternative.
