Hit up Luxor and Aswan this winter

The Madbouly Cabinet signed off yesterday on a campaign to promote domestic winter tourism that will see national flag carrier EgyptAir slashing its airfare on domestic flights and hotels across a handful of tourist destinations also marking down their prices, according to a statement. The campaign will run from 15 January until 28 February in a bid to boost revenues for the tourism industry after tourism receipts last year fell to a third of their 2019 levels on the back of tourist arrivals tumbling 70% y-o-y because of the pandemic.

Also approved yesterday: A bill that will set up a specialized fund to benefit survivors of those killed or injured in terrorist attacks or any military operations.
