Tourism sector to get a much needed boost as EgyptAir announced on Sunday that flights between Luxor-London are set to resume on Monday.
Good news for tourism in Luxor, as EgyptAir announces it will resume flights from Luxor to London on Monday 10am Cairo time.
The statement by the airline was released on Sunday and the resumption of flights will come as a massive relief to those in Luxor dealing with historic lows in tourism, in light of instability and the 2015 Russian airliner crash in Sinai.
The lack of tourism has created an increasingly problematic currency shortage, however, the first step to recovery is resuming flights, and after several airport reviews, it seems that airlines are once again destined to return to Egypt. In the last month, Turkey, Poland, Germany have all seen some resumptions of flights, and negotiating with Russians are rumoured by several media outlets to be close to reaching an agreement. All of which are encouraging signs for the rebuilding of the tourism sector in country currently desperate for foreign currency.
