The Mideast’s biggest airline says it is reviewing security procedures in Egypt but remains committed to flying there as suspicions grow that a bomb brought down a Russian airliner in the Sinai Peninsula.

Emirates airline President Tim Clark told reporters Sunday at the start of the Dubai Airshow that Egypt is “an enormously important market” to the carrier and that it is important that it maintains its operations there.

He says Dubai-based Emirates is reviewing its procedures relating to security, ground handling and access to aircraft while they are on the ground in Egypt.

Emirates operates two daily roundtrip flights linking Cairo with Dubai, the Middle East’s commercial hub.

It does not fly to Sharm El-Sheikh, the departure airport for the doomed Russian airliner.

Clark said he expected the crash of a Russian passenger jet in Egypt would result in demands for stringent aviation security worldwide.
