In January 2023, Russian tourists preferred Egyptian resorts for relaxation.
“Now, when the main countries of Europe are practically closed to Russians, Egypt, which has a unique excursion potential, is gaining popularity. Taking into account the fact that this is a visa-free destination, tour operators note an increased interest in cruise tours along the Nile with visits to the country's monuments “, ATOR quotes the words of the PCT.
It is also known that a number of tour operators of the Russian Federation fix the leading Egypt's position in its sales. For some companies, the booking depth reaches September. Tour operators are noticing an increase in popularity for longer tours, for example, 7-9 nights.
Tour operators also say that, given the increased duration of flights, tourists are increasingly interested in long vacations.
