EgyptAir has decided to cancel all bookings of Umrah pilgrims as of Thursday and until further notice.

The cancellation comes after the Saudi government's decision to temporarily impose a ban on the entry into the kingdom for Umrah pilgrims and for those holding tourist visas from countries, where the new coronavirus has spread, the national carrier said in a statement.

The company asserted its full commitment to the Saudi decision, while continuing to operate flights from and to Saudi Arabia, the statement read.
