Cairo Airport returns to normal

Reports indicate that all airports in Egypt have returned to normal functions and commercial airlines at Cairo Airport say that flight availability is ample and schedules remain on-time.  This news comes as a relief to the Egyptian travel and tourism companies who have seen an enormous drop in business since the revolution that toppled the regime of Hosni Mubarak.

On the cruising front Princess has reinstated calls to Egyptian ports on all itineraries where they were previously removed.  In February due to political unrest, Princess modified its programmes for 18 sailings scheduled to call in Egypt through November.  The cruises on board Dawn Princess, Ocean Princess, Pacific Princess and Star Princess have now returned to their originally published itineraries.

The Cairo Airport website, which failed during the emergency period, is now fully functional. www.cairo-airport.com
