Bosses at a Doncaster Airport have confirmed flights to Egypt have not been affected following a Russian airliner crash at the weekend in which all 224 people on board were killed.

A spokesman for Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield said the incident had not affected flights to Sharm el-Sheikh.

The airport operates two flights a week to the popular holiday destination.

The news comes after it was announced British experts are meeting to decide whether the Russian airliner crash in Egypt should force any change in UK security plans and travel advice, David Cameron said.

The Prime Minister said people should not stop flying to the popular Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh despite claims by airline Metrojet that its aircraft was brought down by an “external impact”.
