Germany lifts luggage restrictions on Sharm el Sheikh routes

Egyptian minister of tourism, Yehia Rashed, has welcomed an announcement that the German government will lift their luggage restrictions to Sharm el Sheikh.

In a statement he said: “This is wonderful news for German tourists and for Egyptian tourism.

“This will enable even more German tourists to visit our country and will be very welcome news for Sharm el Sheikh. 

“We are delighted to welcome back large numbers of German tourists to Sharm el Sheikh to enjoy our wonderful weather, superb resorts and beautiful beaches.

“I very much look forward to other countries following Germany’s lead.”

The move follows a call from the UNWTO earlier this week urging nations to life “unnecessary” luggage bans on routes into Egypt.
