Sisi Receives Representatives of Leading French Travel Companies

During a meeting on Wednesday 26112014, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi assured representatives of leading French travel companies that Egypt has exerted efforts to restore tourism movement to its previous rates.

The president pledged to provide all guarantees for French tourists, Presidency spokesman Alaa Youssef said.

The two sides discussed suggestions that could help remove all impediments of increasing tourism investments in Egypt, he added.

The French companies suggested easing the travel ban on some destinations in Egypt, especially Sinai’s resort of Taba.

They further underlined the importance of operating direct flights to tourist destinations in Egypt.

A delegation of big French travel companies is expected to visit Egypt in February 2015 to show their interest in restoring French travel to Egypt, the spokesman added.
