(Reuters) – British Airways, part of International Airlines Group <ICAG.L>, will resume flights to Cairo following a suspension over security concerns, the airline told Reuters on Friday.

“Following a thorough assessment of the security arrangements, we are pleased that our service to and from Cairo will resume from Friday July 26”, a British Airways spokeswoman said.

BA had suspended flights to Cairo on Saturday for seven days “as a security precaution” as it reviewed security at the Cairo airport.
