Latvian flag-carrier AirBaltic flew hundreds of Latvian tourists home from Egypt’s resort Sharm el-Sheikh over the weekend, the airline said late Sunday.

RIGA (Sputnik) — Two rescue flights brought 270 holidaymakers to the Riga airport on Saturday and Sunday, after AirBaltic suspended flights for two days on Thursday over security concerns.

About 1,500 British Tourists to Return Home From Egypt on Sunday
A Russian passenger plane crashed in Egypt’s Sinai desert soon after its take-off at the Sharm el-Sheikh airport on October 31, killing all 224 people on board.

Fears are that the airliner was brought down by a bomb planted in its hold, according to numerous media reports citing UK and US intelligence.

A total of 460 Latvian tourists were stranded in Egypt after the crash triggered a wave of flight suspensions to and from the country. Of those, 270 were staying in Sharm el-Sheikh and 190 in Hurghada.
