The plane was welcomed with a traditional water salute, expressing the warm reception of the new flight and the tourists at Taba airport.

Flights and tourism in the city suffered following a terrorist attack on a bus carrying tourists in February 2014, which left four tourists dead and 17 injured.

The Smart Wings Airlines flight from Bratislava Airport carried 188 tourists who will spend holidays at Taba and Nuweibaa.

According to news reports, the "Neptune" tourism company will operate a weekly flight from Bratislava airport to Taba to revitalize tourism in South Sinai.
