CAIRO: The Cairo Airport resumed air traffic Monday after a halt of 90 minutes as military exercises continue for the fifth time in 2 weeks.
The air exercises may affect planes departing and landing; thus the halt.
The airport organizes flights to avoid excess crowds of passengers, but on Sept. 22, with the introduction of a new system of processing passports and flights, there were delays from 11 a.m. to 12:30 due to the military training,and the halls of the airport was cramped with passengers.
The military finished last week the first phase of the Right of the Martyr operation in North Sinai, where the air force played a prominent role in targeting dozens of “terrorist hubs” and killing hundreds of alleged militants.
The second phase of the operation aims to maintain tight control over the area, especially Rafah, Sheikh Zuwayed and Arish.
