Lufthansa has resumed flights from Cairo, but British Airways says services will still be cancelled for another six days as a "precaution". reports citing foreign media.

On Saturday BA alerted passengers who were about to board a plane from Heathrow to the Egyptian capital.

German airline Lufthansa also stopped flights between Cairo and Frankfurt and Munich but they resumed on Sunday.

BA took the decision to suspend flights on the Heathrow to Cairo route for "security reasons".

The British government said it was aware of BA "notifying passengers" of the decision to temporarily stop flights to Cairo.

The UK Foreign Office has updated its advice, saying "there is a heightened risk of terrorism against aviation".

A BA spokesman said on Saturday: "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.

"The safety and security of our customers and crew is always our priority, and we would never operate an aircraft unless it was safe to do so."

BA currently runs one flight from Heathrow to Cairo and back again per day - and says flights will continue to be suspended between the capital cities until next Saturday, 27 July.
