MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia grounded charter flights to Red Sea resort cities after an Airbus A321 plane flying to St. Petersburg crashed soon after taking off from Sharm El-Sheikh on October 31. All 224 people aboard died as a result of what was classified by the Russian authorities as a terrorist attack.

"In the event of a resumption of charter services with Egypt to the seaside resorts of Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada it is possible that up to 500 flights a month could be carried out, which is comparable to the current volume of charter transportation to Turkey," the ATOR stated.

Earlier in the day, an informed Egyptian source told RIA Novosti that Egyptian authorities await Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov’s visit as part of the country's delegation between September 26 and September 29.
