Lufthansa has resumed its flights to Cairo after a one-day suspension of the route due to concerns about security.

According to the website of the German airline, Flight LG582 departed Frankfurt on Sunday following a delay of nearly two hours. The flight was due to arrive in the Egyptian capital later in the day.

Lufthansa cited “safety” as the reason for suspending its flights, rather than “security” on Saturday, unlike British Airways, which halted flights to Cairo for a seven-day period as well, but did not explain why, other than to cite “security precautions.”
