Moscow says no deadline set for resuming flights to Egyptian resorts

Published

on

CAIRO – 1 February 2019: Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told TASS on Tuesday that no deadline has been set for the resumption of flights between Russia and the Egyptian resorts.

Russian flag carrier Aeroflot already resumed flights to Cairo in April after more than two-and-a-half years of suspension.

Bogdanov said that despite the absence of charters, a considerable number of tourists still visit Egyptian resorts through third countries. “In terms of distance, quality and price of products, Egypt is a unique place,” he stated.

Flights were suspended at the end of 2015 after a bomb downed a flight carrying holidaymakers from the Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh, killing all 224 people on board, mostly Russian tourists. The attack was claimed by the Islamic State terrorist group.

Since the crash, Egypt has been implementing new, tighter security measures at all of its airports to meet the Russian demands necessary for the resumption of flights, with multiple visits from Russian security delegations to observe changes implemented by the government.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has decreed to resume flights from Moscow to Cairo in January 2018. On April 11, 2018, the first flight of Russia’s Aeroflot airlines arrived to Cairo International Airport.

An Airbus 320 with 160 Russian passengers on board arrived at Terminal 2 of the Cairo International Airport; the Egyptian Aviation Services Company facilitated all the procedures for the Russian passengers.

On October 15 2018, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi embarked on a three-day official visit to Russia, during which he met with his Russian counterpart.

Sisi told press he reviewed with Putin the resumption of direct flights from Russia to Sharm El-Sheikh, Hurghada, and others. Putin agreed during the meeting to resume flights between the two countries, referring that Egypt exerts extensive efforts to secure air flights.

CAIRO – 30 January 2019: “The tourism and marketing policy in Africa is undergoing radical changes, including creating an international coalition between different agencies and companies,” Assistant of Tourism Minister Tarek Nabil stated.

“The ministry’s policy also sheds light on the distinctive features of the Egyptian character and the different tourist destinations in Egypt,” Nabil added.
Egyptian tourism skyrocketed hitting its peak in 2017, according to Nabil.

Moreover, the parliament’s Committee of African Affairs held a meeting headed by parliamentarian Tarek Radwan, in which a persistent plan to boost the African-Egyptian tourism was set.

The Ministry of Tourism expects Egypt to be enlisted among the most visited countries in 2019, according to the latest statistics.

In a similar vein, Egypt has been announced as the fastest growing tourist destination in terms of the year-over-year increase in the number of visitors, according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO)’s 2018 release on global travel and tourism.

The annual report showed that Egypt welcomed about 8.5 million tourists during 2017 with an increase of 55.1 percent, compared to the same period of the previous year.

Luxor and Giza were among Egypt’s most famous and well-known cities, according to the report.

France, however, was the highest voted country for tourists in 2017.

In August, a government official told Reuters that Egypt’s tourism revenues jumped 77 percent in the first half of 2018 to amount to $4.8 billion, compared to the same period of the previous year.
