CAIRO – 13 September 2020: The Hurghada International Airport in the Egyptian Red Sea city is set to receive on October 3 the first flight from Paris, since Egypt’s resumption of international flights early in July, tourism expert Maged Al Qadi said.
In press remarks, Qadi affirmed that all visitors to Egypt take PCR tests to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the North African country again.
This comes a week after the Egyptian civil aviation authority has approved Russian request to resume flights between Cairo and Moscow starting mid-September, after months of suspension over coronavirus pandemic, Egypt’s flag carrier said.
In a statement on Saturday, EgyptAir said it will resume flights with Russia’s Aeroflot airlines, which have been suspended since March. The authorities of both civil aviation airports are coordinating to end the required preparations to operate flights, the statement added.
Earlier in September, the Russian government announced resuming flights with Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and the Maldives, after suspension over the spread of the novel virus, Reuters reported.
EgyptAir also announced resuming flights to Nigeria’s Abuja and Lagos cities as well as to Accra, the capital of Ghana.
