Some travel agencies to renew trips to Egypt

Some Czech travel agencies have decided to renew the sale of holiday packages to Egypt, despite warnings from the Foreign Affairs Ministry for tourists not to travel to the country. Travel agencies in the Czech Republic suspended trips to Egypt in mid-August, when the political situation in the country became unstable and protests broke out in major cities. Some travelers were asked to return to the Czech Republic before the end of their scheduled holiday. Three major agencies are planning to renew trips during September, saying that the situation in the outlying resorts has been stable and safe throughout. Although the Czech Foreign Ministry’s travel alert is still in place, some agencies cite the fact that the British Foreign Office has issued no warnings to tourists travelling to Egypt.
