Following the tragic incident of the Russian passenger jet in October 2015, the South Sinai governorate of Egypt has been declared unsafe for tourists in European countries. Last Thursday, the travel ban has been lifted from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.


According to Egypt Independent, Mohamed al-Hassanein, Federation of Egyptian Chambers of Commerce’s member, said that the Denmark was the first to lift the ban on Thursday, which would prompt other European countries to follow them.


British travel group Thomas Cook announced that Egypt is becoming a desired travel destination after a major drop in tourism. While Russians have been exceptionally wary about traveling to Egypt, Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov announced that Moscow looks forward to the return of Russian tourism to Egyptian resorts soon.
