The European Aviation Safety Administration (EASA) has issued an alert to civil aircraft operating through Egyptian airspace due to “ongoing insurgent activity” in the Northern Sinai Governorate of Egypt deriving from possible use of “small arms fire, rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and anti-aircraft fire, including shoulder-fired man-portable air defense systems (MANPADS)”. EASA considers to threat to represent a “significant risk to aviation overflying this area at or below FL260” and has advised airlines to take this information into account when performing their risk assessments and routing decisions.
