A private Egyptian jet flies to Iran for first time

Published: 03.30.13, 23:46 / Israel News

The first commercial flight between Egypt and Iran in 34 years took off on Saturday, the latest step towards normalising ties broken following the 1979 Iranian Islamic revolution. Egypt and Iran agreed to resume direct flights in October 2010 before President Hosni Mubarak was ousted from power, but none were made.


"A flight by Air Memphis, owned by Egyptian businessman Rami Lakah, took off from Cairo to Tehran carrying eight Iranians including diplomats," one airport official said adding that the airline could later carry out more tourist and business trips between Egypt and Iran. (Reuters)
