CAIRO - 11 June 2020: In light of the government’s preparations for the return of tourism to Egypt, a number of incentives and discounts have been offered to encourage major tour operators to organize trips to Egypt’s touristic governorates.

Among the most important of these incentives are the cancellation of the need for tourist visas to visitors to Egypt’s touristic governorates until 31 October 2020, and the extension of work on the current flight incentive program until 29 October 2020.

The Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources offered a discount on the price of fuel for aviation to a total discount of 10 cents to the gallon.

The Ministry of Civil Aviation offered companies a 50% discount on landing and parking fees, and a 20% discount on ground services to direct flights to airports of touristic governorates until 31 October 2020.

The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, in its turn, is offering a 20% discount on all museum and archaeological site tickets that are under the Supreme Council of Antiquities’ jurisdiction, as well as visitors’ permits to foreign visitors who used Egypt Air and Air Cairo. This offer will be valid for 15 days
