This is specifically after the civilian aircraft from Russia was downed over the Sinai Peninsula in 2015. This incident had resulted in the death of all 224 travelers on board the flight.
A host of nations in Europe along with Russia had canceled all flights to resorts in Egypt after this incident. In 2015, 9.3 million tourists arrived at the ancient sites and beaches in Egypt.
