Foreigners’ visits to world’s most densely inhabited country, which has been instrumental towards Egypt’s flourishing economy, have all of a sudden been down, almost half of what it was before because of two flight crashes, one of which has been confirmed to be a terrorist attack by Government.
However, archaeological tourism is aiding Luxor in contributing towards Egypt’s economy, as foreigners’ visits to the Red Sea beaches and the Pyramids have added around 12% to the whole economy of Europe.
The abode of the Karnak Temple and the Kings, Luxor is the biggest religious destination in the world. As of now, it is experiencing a rise when pitted against Cairo, which is the abode of the Sphinx and Great Pyramid, and Sharm el-Shiekh’s coastal resorts..
Hesam Elhonsy, Luxor International Airport General Manager said, “The Japanese came back first with four direct flights a month from Osaka. The Germans were next with five direct flights a week. By October, both London Heathrow and Gatwick will have nonstop Luxor flights, and this is sure to boost the number of visitors coming from the USA.”
Luxor’s success is clearly an indication that in spite of trouble in the Middle East and numerous air crashes, people there still believe that they will soon bounce back to their previous profit rates in tourism in Egypt.
