Air Malta announced on Thursday the resumption of its direct flights from Malta to Cairo after 12-year-hiatus.
In this regard, Tourism Minister Dr. Rania Al-Mashat expressed her happiness for the return of international flights to Egypt again, a matter which shows the fruitful outcomes of the tourism marketing campaigns for Egypt.
“It is an indicator of the Egyptian tourism’s success and its great return to global tourism,” Al-Mashat noted, adding that operating such flights will increase the number tourists flocking to Egypt, especially from the new markets.
The minister pointed to the Tourism Ministry’s keenness on opening new and promising markets, affirming the ongoing promotional efforts to attract more tourists.
She mentioned that the promotion and marketing axis of the Egypt-Tourism Reform Program (E-TRP) aims to diversify the tourism exporting markets and open new ones.
Meanwhile, Spanish Iberia Airlines will launch a new route from Madrid to Cairo as of March 2, 2020.
The Spanish carrier will operate four weekly flights which can accommodate nearly 141 customers, distributed in business and economy cabins.
It is worth mentioning that the ministry finished all its receivables of the previous charter flight incentive program and launched a new one in November 2018 in cooperation with the Civil Aviation Ministry.
