Airport security across France has been ensured at the highest level, French Minister of State for Transport Alain Vidalies said Friday.

PARIS (Sputnik) – Vidalies' statement comes a day after EgyptAir flight MS804, en route from the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris to the Cairo International Airport, disappeared over the Mediterranean Sea.

"European and international security inspections indicate that France is at the highest level in terms of safety," Vidalies said in an interview with France Info radio.

He added that staff inspections at airports in Paris led to refusals to grant access to sensitive areas inside airports "whenever there was some concern, not even suspicion."
