EgyptAir Express, which offers domestic and regional flights, is organising 253 flights to the Red Sea resorts of Sharm El-Sheikh and Hurghada as well as Upper Egypt’s historical cities of Luxor and Aswan for Eid El-Fitr, which starts 24 June and ends 3 July, according to Al-Ahram Arabic news website.

Pilot Helmy Rizk, the director of EgyptAir Express, told Al-Ahram Arabic that the move, which comes as part of an effort to increase tourism, includes an increased capacity to meet any possible increase in demand.

EgyptAir has also increased the presence of its staff at Cairo International Airport in anticipation of increased traffic at the departure hall.

Eid El-Fitr is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to mark the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.
