Sharm el-Sheikh Airport director not dismissed: source

An official source at the Egyptian Holding Company for Airports and Air Navigation denied reports that Sharm el-Sheikh Airport Director Abdel Wahab Ali has been dismissed.
Sharm el-Sheikh Airport operates in full capacity and receives international flights from all over the world without any amendments or cancellations of flights, except for the British flights which have been suspended, the source added.
Chairman of EgyptAir Ground Services Mohamed Saeed dismissed Yehia Ashour, head of the Department of Accidents and Insurance in the company, from his post and transferred him to another position in the Human Resources Department against the backdrop of reported corruption incidents.
A committee was formed to investigate the corruption claims.
