British Airways has canceled all its flights to/from Cairo this week. On Saturday July 20, in a statement, British Airways 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.”

A spokesperson for the airline declined to provide further information about the suspensions, saying the company did not comment on security matters.

The move comes as Britain weighs its response to Iran’s seizure Friday of a British-flagged oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz and rising tensions stemming from U.S. sanctions’ effect on Iran’s economy and oil exports. The strait and Cairo are separated by 2,500 kilometers (1,500 miles).

British Airways is working with customers whose flights are impacted. Travelers should closely monitor this developing situation.
