CAIRO: EgyptAir is allowing its stewardesses to wear Islamic headscarves if they wish on flights to Arab states and will expand the practice to the rest of the network, ending a ban imposed in the era of former president Hosni Mubarak.

It follows a move to allow presenters on state television's flagship news broadcasts to wear the hijab.
