Egypt received two flights carrying 313 tourists from Switzerland and Belarus on Thursday, the second day of Egypt’s international flight resumption after more than three months of suspension over COVID-19 concerns.
Hurghada airport received a flight carrying 141 Swiss tourists while Sharm el-Sheikh airport received another with 172 Belarusian tourists, the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities said in a statement.
Egypt has recently lifted a partial nighttime curfew imposed in the country over the past three months, amid a coexistence plan to maintain anti-coronavirus precautionary measures while resuming economic activities.
Tourism is one of the main sources of national income and foreign currency in Egypt. The country’s tourism revenues hit a record high of 13 billion United States dollars in 2019.
