(Tass) The Egyptian side is ready to provide to Russians a separate terminal at Cairo International Airport, if the influx of tourists from Russia reaches significant levels, press attache of the Egyptian Embassy to Russia Ayman Mousa said on the Rossiya 24 TV channel on Friday.

“Egypt will soon open a new terminal,” he said. “Experts from Russia and the whole world have highly assessed it.

The minister of civil aviation said that we will receive your (Russian) aircraft at the terminal, and do not mind to discuss the terminal’s use when the number of tourists from Russia reaches a certain level.

This level has not been defined yet, as it’s the subject of discussion between the two countries”, said the embassy official.

Earlier, Russian Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov also spoke about the prospects of opening a new terminal for Russian tourists, noting that “it all depends on the Egyptian colleagues.”

He said that the conclusion of Russian specialists on the new terminal’s security could provide the basis for decision making by the Russian leadership.

Sokolov said on Tuesday that Russia’s Transport Ministry may raise before the country’s leadership the issue of phased opening of a number of Egyptian airports, and Cairo airport may be the first.

“Theoretically, the issue may be raised before the country’s leadership concerning the phased opening of a number of airports of Egypt for organizing regular and charter flights. Generally speaking, Cairo airport may be the first in this sense,” the minister said.

According to him, a second terminal for servicing Russian tourists may be opened in that airport.

“This terminal meets all the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) requirements in the sphere of transport security. However, everything here depends on the Egyptian colleagues: when they inform us of the terminal opening, when our group comes there for auditing and making a conclusion. And it (conclusion) may be taken as a basis for making a decision by the Russian leadership,” Sokolov added.

The minister said previously that Russia’s delegation may pay a visit to Egypt in late August – early September.

The risks of downing an airliner with so few explosives would be much much slighter if the airliners simply flew lower thus avoiding serious depressurisation risks but flying would be more expensive as air density being higher, thus is its resistance and so, you ‘drink’ more kerosene. Well, it’d make a more crowded airspace. A method would be making very aerodynamic helium filed high subsonic kinda blimps. There are some projects on some drawing boards, such airplanes having a huge part lighter than air could even be (partly?) propelled using solar energy but it seems not to gain interest from… Read more »

Another interesting idea, doing as the israeli busses companies and more and more public places : use pig grease everywhere and advertising it, making the mudjahid sure to end in h**l as his carcass will be crippled with bits having traces of “haram” pig fat. Seems that since the israeli busses use this trick, nobody still dares to do suicide bombing in those…
