Egypt to participate in OTDYKH Leisure 2017 in Moscow

Sun, Sep. 17, 2017
CAIRO – 17 September 2017: Egypt will participate in OTDYKH Leisure 2017, International Trade Fair for Travel and Tourism Forum, which will be held in Moscow from September 19-21, Mustafa Khalil, vice president of the Egyptian Tourism Federation, told media outlets on Saturday.

“A formal Egyptian delegation will participate in the forum where the members will present a cooperation protocol with Russian travel companies,” Khalil was quoted saying by Russia Today channel.

OTDYKH Leisure is the largest tourism event in Russia. It helps the development of the tourism industry in Russia, facilitates the establishment of business contacts for representatives of the tourist market, and advertises the country´s capabilities on the international level.

Russia, the country with the largest number of tourists visiting Egypt, has suspended its flights to Egypt following a plane crash in 2015 that took off from Sharm El-Sheikh Airport. The crash led to the deaths of all 224 people on board and was claimed to have been downed by the Islamic State (IS) militant group. Furthermore, a number of European countries suspended flights to Sharm El-Sheikh following the crash but have recently reinstated direct flights to the South Sinai hotspot.
