Another week, another flight resuming, as EgyptAir announces they will be offering weekly flights starting December 5th, signalling another positive step forward on recovering Egypt's ailing tourism.
More good news for Egypt’s ailing tourism sector as EgyptAir announces it will begin flying weekly trips between Madrid and Luxor.
According to a statement made by the Chairman of EgyptAir, Safwat Mosalam, the first Madrid-Luxor flight is set to depart on December 5th, adding that "This comes within the framework of restoring the tourism industry in Egypt, as it is one of the most important sources of national income."
The news comes as an encouraging sign that Egypt’s tourism sector can begin to heal from the devastating Russian plane crash last year, which resulted in various international countries banning flights. The news is not the first announcement on resuming flights to Luxor, as EgyptAir resumed flights between Luxor and London in October. Encouragingly, EgyptAir isn’t the only airline resuming flights as a variety of foreign airlines in recent weeks have announced they too will resume flights to Sharm El-Sheikh, putting Egypt’s tourism on the road to recovery.
