The European Travel Agents’ and Tour Operators’ Association met the Egyptian Minister for Tourism, Dr.Monir Fakhri Abdel Nour, and the Chairman of the Egyptian tourist authority, Mr Amr El Azabi, to discuss how to revitalise and strengthen tourism in Egypt.
For the European travel industry Egypt is a holiday destination of paramount importance and this meeting is the first step towards a broader collaboration that will target promotional and communication activities as well as addressing practical problems and issues of tour operators in Egypt, for the benefit of both Egyptian and European tourism operators and ultimately of the consumer.
Said Chairman of the Destination and Sustainability Committee, Mr. Claude Perignon: “The past political events have created a faulty image of Egypt. Together, European tour operators and Egyptian Authorities have to convey to customers the feeling that they are welcome in Egypt and that their safety is guaranteed. We will work together to improve the image of Egypt and deliver high quality tourism services, so that travellers can fully enjoy the natural, historic and cultural richness of this beautiful country. Now it’s the time to bring back tourists to Egypt!”
ECTAA represents the national associations of travel agents and tour operators of 29 European countries. Altogether it represents some 70.000 enterprises.
