Egypt Airport Curfew

Egyptair cancels all flights during curfew hours

Jan 31, 2011

Egypt's flag carrier announced on Monday the cancellation of all its domestic and international flights during curfew hours.

Egyptair said it would cancel all flights scheduled between 3 pm and 8 pm (1300-1600 GMT) from Monday and that it would change certain flight times to abide by the curfew pending further notice.

It asked customers worldwide to contact the company to verify its new flight schedule.

The curfew was slapped on Cairo, Suez and Alexandria on Friday, theoretically narrowing the window of time available for protests.

But this did nothing to deter thousands of people from gathering for the seventh consecutive day in Tahrir (Liberation) Square, at the heart of Cairo, to demand the departure of President Hosni Mubarak.
