The crash of the EgyptAir plane in the Mediterranean Sea will affect the timeframe of lifting of the ban on flights from Russia to Egypt, regardless of the cause of the crash, local media reported Friday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Thursday, EgyptAir flight MS804 with 66 people on board disappeared from radar screens while flying ten miles into Egyptian airspace. The EgyptAir flight originated from the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, France and was heading to Cairo, Egypt.

"This is all directly linked to safety of our passengers," a high-ranking source in the Russian government told the newspaper, adding that the crash would definitely impact the flight resumption.

Russia and several other countries suspended flights to and from Egypt last fall after a Russian airliner crashed in the Sinai desert on October 31 while flying from the resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg killing all 224 people on board. Militants affiliated with the Islamic State (Daesh) terror group, outlawed in Russia, claimed responsibility for what they said was a bomb attack.
