Egypt sees increase in tourist bookings

Post by newcastle » Wed Mar 29, 2017 9:59 am

UK tour company Thomas Cook announced on Tuesday that it is seeing a rise in bookings by holidaymakers looking to visit Egypt and Turkey for the summer season.

The increased bookings bode well for Egypt, which has suffered sharp drops in tourism in recent years, particularly with travel bans imposed by the UK and Russia following the 2015 crash of a Russian passenger flight in Sinai.

In March, Thomas Cook announced that a number of flights are planned to travel in November 2017 from the UK to Egypt's South Sinai resort city of Sharm El-Sheikh. However, the company says that if the British flight ban is not lifted by May, tickets will be refunded.

I haven't noticed (perhaps I've missed it?) any resumption of flights to Luxor.
