LuxairTours offers free re-booking for Egypt holidays
(CS) LuxairTours is offering holidaymakers the chance to change the booking on upcoming Egypt holidays for free, following the declaration of a state of emergency in the country after violent clashes between government supporters and opponents.
Some 375 people have booked a flight with LuxairTours for an Egyptian holiday resort this Friday. Meanwhile, 365 travellers booked on LuxairTours are returning from their holiday on the same day, leaving 199 people in the region.
While no official travel warning has been issued for Egypt's Red Sea region, the travel agency is offering free re-bookings due to the political unrest, that killed more than 140 people on Wednesday, in the country.
In July, the Foreign Ministry warned travellers to avoid visiting Egypt, except for its well-known tourist sea-side resorts.
