British Airways has cancelled all flights to the Egyptian capital Cairo for a week as a security “precaution”.
Passengers about to board a BA flight to the city from London’s Heathrow Airport were told that it was cancelled – and that there would be no alternative flights for a week.
The airline did not specify what the security issue was.
A spokesman for Cairo airport told the BBC the airport had yet to be notified by BA of any such changes.
A BA spokesman said: “We constantly review our security arrangements at all our airports around the world, and have suspended flights to Cairo for seven days as a precaution to allow for further assessment.
