Egypt to reopen select tourist destinations from July 1

In a move to draw tourists to popular yet remote attractions that have been spared the ravages of the deadly Coronavirus, Egypt is likely to reopen select tourist destinations to international charter flights from July 1, the cabinet stated on Thursday, June 11.

The move will allow travellers from all around the world to return to parts of the country less hard-hit by the global pandemic.

The southern part of the Sinai Peninsula, home to the major resort and beach destination of Sharm el Sheikh, the Red Sea resort areas of Hurghada and Marsa Alam, as well as Marsa Matrouh, on the Mediterranean coast are some of the tourist destinations likely to reopen from next month. Cabinet spokesman Nader Saad, said that the Cairo airport will continue to remain shut till further orders while public parks and beaches will stay closed till the end of July.
