CAIRO – 22 July 2021: Member of Hospitality Establishments Chamber Hisham al-Shaer told Al Watan newspaper Thursday that the occupancy rate of Alexandria and North Coast hotels during Eid Al Adha is 95 percent of the maximum 70 percent occupancy rate designated by the government because of COVID-19.
Shaer elaborated that the great majority of customers at the time are Egyptians and Arabs, and that such high occupancy rate is estimated to continue until the end of August. He further added that some hotels have reached the maximum occupancy rate already.
The businessman pointed out that the North Coast succeeded in becoming the second favorite Egyptian destination for Arab tourists after Cairo. That is because of the introduction of cinemas, aqua parks, and outing venues that are suitable for families.
