Tour operator «Tez Tour» has launched the sale of tours to Egypt: the company’s product line includes programs to Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh with a flight through Cairo.
So, according to the data on the website of the tour operator, the first arrival at the Egyptian resorts in the framework of group programs is scheduled for April 12. Further, the transportation of tourists on the wings of Aeroflot will be carried out three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. At the same time, the cost of such programs is quite high for the Egyptian destination — 7 nights in a three-star hotel in Hurghada will cost Russian travelers an average of 70 thousand for two.
However, according to experts, such programs are unlikely to be popular among our compatriots. “I don’t think that the opening of Cairo will somehow increase the tourist flow. At this stage, tourists to Egypt fly only through Turkey. But since in summer the cost of a Turkish Airlines flight to Egypt was simply sky-high, the number of such tourists was minimal. Therefore, it is not necessary to speak about mass tourism in this case. ”, — said earlier the director of the travel agency“ ALS-tour ”Sergey Zalivin.
Note that for the tourists themselves, Cairo is, to put it mildly, not the most convenient airport in Egypt, since it is quite long and inconvenient to get to the resort areas from the Egyptian capital. If we talk about ground transport, then, for example, travelers will have to get to Hurghada from Cairo in about 6 hours, and given that many Russians go on vacation with children, this option is unacceptable for the bulk of tourists. Domestic flights are also not entirely suitable for Russians, because if we consider that they will have to fly regular flights to Cairo, which is not cheap in itself, then another flight from the Egyptian capital to Hurghada or Sharm will significantly affect the cost of the trip.
