Egypt will offer airlines financial incentives to restore air links and help the country’s tourism sector recover from the coronavirus crisis.
Aircraft landing and parking fees are set to be halved, while rates for ground services at South Sinai, Red Sea and Matrouh airports will be cut by 20%.
The price of air fuel will also be cut 10%. The incentives will run until the end of October.
It follows a meeting between tourism minister Khaled El-Enany and civil aviation minister Mohamed Manar.
Egypt last month announced it was cutting the cost of some tourism visas, and entry fees for archaeological sites and museums.
