Egypt opens new international airport in Giza for trial flights

Published

on

CAIRO (Reuters) – Egypt opened a new international airport on the outskirts of the capital on Saturday for an initial trial period, in a bid to ease pressure from Cairo’s main airport and help boost tourism.

The Sphinx International Airport, located near the Giza Pyramids and the new Grand Egyptian Museum, is expected to operate 30 flights by early February during its trial run.

The $17 million project comes as part of the Tourism Ministry’s plan to improve accessibility to historical sites from resort areas on the Red sea like Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada. It will fully open in 2020.

The bombing of a Russian airliner shortly after it took off from Sharm el Sheikh in 2015 hit tourism numbers hard, continuing a downward trend that started with the years of turmoil following the “Arab Spring” protests of 2011.

Tourism revenues had begun to rebound, jumping 77 percent year-on-year in the first half of 2018 to $4.8 billion, before a deadly attack on a bus in December killed three Vietnamese tourists and their Egyptian guide.

The bus attack was the first deadly attack against foreign tourists in Egypt for over a year.

A second wave of the coronavirus is expected to hit and here’s how Egypt is preparing to face it!

Egypt’s Health Minister Hala Zayed said that if the wave does hit, Egypt will not force another lockdown and that it is preparing to face the second wave.

Egypt’s Health Minister Hala Zayed told the 67th session of the World Health Organization Regional Committee for the Eastern Mediterranean on Tuesday, that Egypt has learned from the first wave not to resort to the strategy of shutting down completely or even partially.

“This is the lesson we learned from the first wave; that countries should not resort to this strategy the way they did during the first wave, but should rather respond to surges in cases within localised [population] clusters,” Zayed said.

“However, all [precautionary] health measures will remain in place in the upcoming wperiod,” Zayed assured.

The minister also added that 2,300 persons have volunteered to undergo clinical trials in Egypt so far, and that 1,770 people have been subjected to full research.

The vaccine will be prepared at Factory 60 at VACSERA, the minister added.

Minister Hala Zayed also assured us that a number of 600 hospitals across the country are fully prepared to deal with any possible or sudden rise in number of cases.

During a press conference held in coordination with WHO, Zayed said: “we developed 45 fever and chest hospitals, and the development process of the remaining hospitals is underway.”

On an individual level, we must as well be prepared for a second wave and take precautionary levels to keep the number of cases at bay.
