CAIRO – 20 June 2020: Cairo International Airport is receiving on Saturday 858 Egyptian expats who were stuck in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and UAE, and are being repatriated to their homeland.

The airport has earlier received a Saudia Airline flight carrying 275 Egyptian nationals, and a Nile Air flight carrying 166 others both coming from Jeddah. Also, an Air Cairo flight and an Arabia Airlines flight brought home 174 citizens from Kuwait and 243 others from Sharjah, respectively.

Since the suspension of international aviation on March 19, Egypt had repatriated over 30,000 nationals. The beginning was with citizens who were in temporary visits or stays. Later, the exceptional flights started bringing home expats who were terminated, particularly in the Gulf.

Paid quarantine in Marsa Alam hotels and free-of-charge quarantine in university dorms have been substituted with home self-isolation for 14 days. When passengers arrive at the airport, their body temperature is measured.
