Tourist rates could return to their pre-pandemic levels as early as Fall 2022, Minister

Tourist rates in Egypt could be back to their pre-pandemic levels as early as Fall 2022, Tourism Minister Khaled El enany told El Hekaya’s Amr Adib on Friday according to Enterprise

The last three months have seen between 270k and 290k tourists visiting Egypt on average per month, the minister said, up from 90k when commercial travel resumed in July following the covid-19 lockdown.

El enany suggested that other global destinations could take until 2024 to recover, while Egypt could stage a quicker turnaround thanks to the fact that many of Egypt’s tourist destinations, such as beach resorts, are open air, as well as the appeal of the new Grand Egyptian Museum, should push for a faster recovery in Egypt than global estimates predict
