The Russian airliner and the future of Egyptian tourism
Al-Anba, Kuwait, April 30

The Egyptian tourism industry is still suffering from the billions of dollars lost since the downing of a Russian airliner in October 2015, which brought to a halt all commercial flights to Sharm e-Sheikh. Very few tourists have since visited the Sinai Peninsula, putting hotel and resort owners out of business. Sadly, the victims themselves, the Egyptian tourism workers, are those being punished for crimes committed by others.
