Luxor’s Hot Air Balloon Trips Resume After 80-day Suspension

Published

on

The hot air balloon trips in Luxor resumed on Tuesday after an incident that caused the suspension of the activity for 80 days by the ministry of civil aviation.

In June, a balloon drifted off its course due to strong winds and landed in a desert valley near Naga Hammadi town, but luckily a search plane was able to find and retrieve the missing individuals.

After the incident, the ministry called for an upgrade in the security systems in order to ensure the safety of individuals, among these upgrades is a tracker and a better intercom system. In taking those safety measures, the Civil Aviation Authority gave the green light to resume the trips.

Yesterday, a trip carried 19 tourists of different nationalities who got to see the stunning top view of mountains, antiquities and temples in the east and west bank.

The Civil Aviation Authority has also given balloon operators intensive training for them to be able to use the modern devices that help track the balloons and record the ride’s navigation, this way the balloon flight paths follow the authority’s principles of safety and security.
