Twenty-two EU consuls in Cairo have inspected this morning the security situation at the airport of Hurghada to follow the established security measures within the airport.

The delegation who began his tour on Wednesday also held a meeting with airport officials.

The move comes to stimulate tourism and express a real image of safety and security in the touristic resort.

Tourism officials expect an increase in the number of tourists visiting Egypt in the coming period، as European countries start to lift the flights ban to Sinai.

European countries and the US have imposed a flights ban to Sinai، after a Russian civilian plane crashed in Sinai، killing all passengers and the flight crew members، in October 2015.

The total number of tourists who visited Egypt reached 640179 tourists in February 2016، according to Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS).
