Tourism in Egypt begins to rebound in July- minister

Egypt’s coastal governorates of the Red Sea, South Sinai and Matrouh have received 22k tourist since resumption international flights at the beginning of the month, Tourism and Antiquities Minister Khaled El Anany said in an interview with CNBC Arabia.

He added that no covid-19 cases have been reported among them. Historical and cultural tourism in Luxor and Aswan governorates will resume when covid-19 cases there subside, he said.

While the ministry is helping investors complete projects that were already in development pre-covid, it’s just too early to talk of new investment in the sector at this stage, El Anany said.
