Egypt’s flagship airline EgyptAir has increased the number of flights to a range of Egyptian tourist hubs and other popular destinations in celebration of Eid Al-Adha, the Islamic holiday that occurs at the conclusion of the ritual hajj pilgrimage to Mecca.

According to Al-Ahram Arabic news website, the airline is operating 200 flights across Red Sea’s Hurghada, South Sinai’s Sharm El-Sheikh, Luxor, Aswan, and Marsa Alam until Thursday, the fourth day of Eid.

The airline will run 61 flights to Sharm El-Sheikh, 52 to Hurghada, 42 to Aswan, 32 to Luxor, four to Marsa Alam, and nine to Alexandria.

Egyptians will celebrate Eid Al-Adha on Tuesday, often by going out to parks and zoos or travelling to holiday destinations.
