Additional flights to Egypt, due to start on January 27, will be packed with tourists. This is how the representatives of the Russian travel market estimate the demand. As the press service of the tour operator TEZ-tour told the correspondent of the TURPROM information group, in the current conditions Egypt has become one of the most popular destinations among tourists in the winter tourist season 2020/2021.
“Compared to the same period last year, the demand for tours to the country on the basis of regular flights has almost doubled. This trend has been firmly entrenched since last autumn, when the charter programs of traditionally summer destinations available to Russians for recreation were completed. The increase in the number of flights to Cairo to 5 per week is highly likely to increase the current volume of bookings of the tour operator at least 2 times, «the press service of TEZ Tour said. At the same time, according to experts, it is too early to make forecasts regarding changes in the cost of air travel. “According to preliminary estimates, at the start of the updated flight program, prices will be lower than the current ones, then, as the tourist season in Egypt develops, they are highly likely to rise, as demand will exceed supply. “At the moment, the cost of air tickets for Aeroflot flights on the Moscow-Cairo-Moscow route with a departure in the next 2.5 months starts from 25.5 thousand rubles. At the same time, for some dates, the number of vacant seats is already minimal, ”the experts estimated.
Note that all the important information on the flight to Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh and the rules for entering Egypt is presented in the material at this link.
As for the current statistics on Egypt from the TEZ Tour experts, it is as follows. Hurghada with its surrounding regions and the resorts of Sharm el-Sheikh are equally in demand among Russian tourists. Holidays with children account for a third of the demand for a destination. Up to 70% of all clients choose accommodation in 5 * hotels, and the vast majority of tourists prefer all-inclusive meals. Traditionally, the bulk of bookings are for 10-day tours, but this year there is an interesting trend — the demand for a long vacation from 16 days to a month, depending on the date of arrival, reaches 15% of the total interest in the destination. Last season, this figure was significantly lower.
The cost of weekly tours, according to the tour operator, with accommodation in a 4 * hotel for «all inclusive»:
- in Sharm el-Sheikh starts from 43’900 rubles per person,
- in Hurghada — from 44’400 rubles per person.
In addition to a beach holiday, for tourists wishing to get to know the capital of Egypt or take a cruise on the Nile, TEZ Tour offers a wide range of hotels in Cairo for booking.
