CAIRO (Sputnik) — The first passenger flight by Turkish Airlines landed in Sharm el-Sheikh early on Sunday, the source at the resort’s airport told RIA Novosti. The airline plans to fly to Sharm el-Sheikh four times a week.

Russian A321 plane crashed in the Sinai desert shortly after taking off at the Sharm el-Sheikh airport on October 31, 2015, killing all 224 people on board.

The suspected bombing by a local militant group grounded flights to the Red Sea resort from Russia, Britain, Turkey and several other nations over perceived holes in the airport security.
