Egypt’s international flights are scheduled to resume next month following weeks of international travel suspension.
The country’s Civil Aviation Minister Mohamed Manar recently stated that by July 1, 2020, all airports will be re-opened.
Manar said that going forward, all airports across Egypt will be disinfected in readiness for the resumption of operations for all airlines in the country, Arab News reports.
He added that as a measure towards taming the spread of coronavirus, there will be no hard copies of magazines or any other publications which could potentially transmit the virus fast.
Also, there will only be dry food and canned drinks being served.
Egypt temporarily grounded international travel in March just like many Africa countries but is ready to resume operations even as the virus ravages parts of the country.
Besides the re-opening of airports, visitors from other countries will be allowed to access the coastal resorts of the country starting July.
Most of the tourist destinations in Egypt have recorded few coronavirus cases.
One of the most affected regions by the pandemic is greater Cairo which has recorded many COVID-19 cases.
Other African countries are expected to resume airline operations beginning July.
Among them is Tanzania whose first international arrival will start on June 16.
