French airline Air France has decided to avoid flying over the Sinai Peninsula for safety reasons, following the crash of a Russian passenger plane in that region of Egypt.

A spokeswoman for the company said Saturday that Air France’s flights will avoid the area pending the investigation “as a precaution, until further notice.”

The airline will instead use other routes to the region’s airports.

The decision follows a similar move by Lufthansa announced earlier Saturday.
