While several airlines are suspending operations due to the coronavirus situation and the restrictions imposed in connection with it, Egyptair announced the launch of a new flight from Budapest starting this month.
The scheduled flight on the Airbus 220 is expected to run from November 28 until the spring of 2021, with planes leaving Budapest at 2:55 p.m. and returning from Hurghada at 10:45 a.m.
The airline is paying special attention to the safety of passengers and the observance of hygiene regulations; for example, it provides each passenger with their own medical kit on board. It wants to ensure the support of travel agents for the flight to be a success, so it has sought to provide conditions that pose the least risk. The company is also handling canceled flights with a great deal of flexibility, providing free modifications. Reimbursement claims, if not canceled by the airline, will be assessed on an individual basis.
Starting September 1, all passengers arriving at Egyptian airports, with the exception of children under the age of 6, are required to present a negative PCR test no more than 72 hours old.
