Tourism expert، Issam Ali، said that the sector saw a big drop in revenues during the 2016 season، particularly after the Russian crash in the Sinai.

He added the Ministry of Tourism would participate in January and February with 43 touristic exhibitions through the activation body.

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.

Days ago، Barcelona striker Lionel Messi traveled to Egypt as the face of an initiative to promote the North African country as a medical tourism destination for hepatitis C patients.

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