Is it safe to travel to Egypt?

Germany's Lufthansa, Emirates and Air France said they would halt flights over Sinai until the reasons behind the crash became clear. Russia has grounded Kogalymavia’s fleet of six A321s until at least November 30 - the airline only has eight planes. Reports on social media suggest Russians have been cancelling flights and package tours with Kogalymavia in the wake of the crash. 

For Brits, The Foreign Office advises against "all travel" to the northern half of the Sinai Peninsula. But it does not warn against visiting Sharm el-Sheikh, the Red Sea resort where the aircraft took off. The Foreign Office cautions there is a "high threat from terrorism" throughout Egypt, adding: "We believe that terrorists continue to plan attacks. Attacks could be indiscriminate and occur without prior warning."
