Egypt shelves plan to shut down Cairo airport at night

The chairman of Egypt's Airports Holding Co, Magdi Abdul Hadi, has said plans to shut two runways at Cairo's international airport at night have been shelved temporarily, AFP has reported. "The idea is still under study. It will not be implemented until such time as appropriate conditions are in place that will not negatively affect passengers, airlines and the airport authority," Hadi said. Last month, civil aviation minister Wael Al Maadawi said the runways would be shut for four hours each night from 1:30am from June 1, due to few incoming flights and to save energy.
