480 tourists arrive in Luxor
Four charter direct flights from Germany arrived in Luxor International Airport on Thursday carrying 480 tourists, Youm7 reported. The flights came from Germany’s international airports of Munich, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Schönefeld, said director of public relations and media at Luxor Airport Khairy Hassan Bakhit. The number of tourists visiting Egypt witnessed a sharp decline following the crash of a Russian airliner over Sinai in late October. Germany, Italy, Russia, France, and the UK halted flights to and from Egyptian airports shortly after the crash. The industry took a further dive following the murder of Italian Cambridge University graduate, Giulio Regeni, whose body was found dumped along a highway with signs of torture in Egypt’s Giza governorate in early February.
