Egypt’s Safaga port Shuts Over Bad Weather… 1250 Tourists Arrives

On Sunday morning, the authorities in Safaga Port decided to shut the port and delay the tours of vessels owing to the bad weather.

Gen. Mahmoud Abdel Khalek, Head of Safaga Port, said the bad weather raised the waves in the Red Sea to 4 meters and the high winds are the main reasons behind closing the port.

He added that delaying the tours to the Saudi ports is a precautionary procedure to protect the passengers’ lives; emphasizing that this decision came after the arrival of the cruise ship “Arominia”, which came from Sharm Al Sheikh with 1250 tourists from different nationalities.
