Russia has resumed international flights with Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and the Maldives, according to Reuters.
A government order published on Thursday showed that Moscow had authorized three flights a week to Cairo, as well as two flights a week to Dubai and to the Maldives’s Velana International Airport.
Moscow grounded most international flights in late March to slow the spread of Covid-19. Moscow gradually lifted travel restrictions to Britain, Turkey, Switzerland, and Tanzania starting in August.
The decree, signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, states that air travel with Egypt, the UAE and the Maldives will resume “on a reciprocal basis.” It means that the three countries will need to accept Russian citizens in order for Moscow to accept theirs.
