Egypt plans to reopen all its airports for scheduled international traffic on July 1, said Civil Aviation Minister Mohamed Manar Anba on Sunday.
At a press briefing, he said that flights would resume gradually at the airports from the start of July. Egypt will also resume flights next month with countries that have opened their airports, he added.
Mohamed Manar Anba said the foreign tourism would be limited to resorts in three coastal provinces, after the government said on Thursday it would reopen Egypt’s main seaside resorts for international flights and foreign tourists from July 1.
the decision is “an important step for the aviation sector to be accompanied with the sanitization operations for all the country’s airports and aeroplanes.”
Egypt suspended regular international flights in March and also shut down airports, restaurants, hotels and cafes as measures against the coronavirus spread.
Mohamed Manar Anba also outlined measures to be taken inside planes, at airports and in hotels to help to ensure the health and safety of foreign tourists.
