|The following update on Egypt’s preparedness for international tourism has been provided by IAGTO member Airbus Tours.
- People working in the hotel and tourism industry have already been vaccinated
- The government has increased the allowed hotel occupancy from 50% to 70%
- Egypt is now receiving more high numbers of visitors, particuarly to Hurghada and Sharm El Shiekh on the Red Sea, with no recorded Covid infections
This is a positive situation with Egypt looking to capitalize on the opening of the new Egyptian Museum by the pyramids, when the European autumn and winter season kicks in.
