Sharm El-Sheikh International Airport
CAIRO – 11 October 2020: Sharm El-Sheikh International Airport received on Sunday the first flight of Enter Air, coming from Poland with 189 tourists on board, after the resumption of air traffic to Sharm El-Sheikh.
Airport authorities, including Director Khaled Abdel Salam, received the passengers with flowers. The public relations team has provided all the necessary services, and a speedy completion of the arrival procedures. Strict precautionary measures and social distancing were applied to preserve the safety of travelers.
A weekly flight will be operated on the same airline line, as part of the efforts made by the Civil Aviation Ministry, in coordination with the Tourism and Antiquities Ministry, to stimulate air traffic and increase the number of flights between Egypt and European countries.
Egyptian airports are obligated to implement the government’s decision to ban the entry of travelers of all nationalities, who fail to submit a PCR test certificate with a negative result, provided that the test is carried out 72 hours before the flight; children under the age of 6 years are excluded from PCR test certificates.
Meanwhile, those who are coming from Japan - China - Thailand - North and South America - Canada and London Heathrow - Paris - Frankfurt airports should obtain a PCR certificate free from the coronavirus 96 hours before their arrivals due to the long travel and transit time.
Those who are arriving directly to Sharm El-Sheikh, Hurghada, Marsa Alam and Taba airports can only perform a PCR test upon their arrival at the airports for $30 if they do not bring the PCR certificate.
