The Egyptian government has recently announced an agreement made with Greece, Cyprus, and Italy, to seduce their citizens to visit the second biggest city in Egypt, Alexandria. As a result of the agreement, the chairman of Alexandria Chamber of Travel Agencies, Ali Al-Manesterly, has declared in a press statement on Friday that private beaches created exclusively for tourists will be established on the Mediterranean coast in Alexandria, Egypt.

Seeing that the beaches are to be tailored to suit the needs of foreign nationalities, Manesterly assured that the launch of these private beaches promise an encouraging future for the tourism in Alexandria.

Manesterly noted that tourists value their privacy when on their vacations, he added that the idea of allocating beaches to foreign tourism will create an opportunity to promote beach tourism alongside the classical, cultural and conference tourism enjoyed by Alexandria.

Moreover, the Chamber’s strategy also includes having regular direct flights between the three countries and Alexandria city so as to further increase the tourist flow to the city. Therefore, Borg al-Arab Airport is set to double its capacity of hosting passengers and it is forecasted to host 4 million passengers by 2022 whereas it can currently serve 1.2 million.

Additionally, to the increase in the airport capacity, the government also plans to double the hotel room in the city, as to allocate for the increase in visitors and tourists.

Manesterly further mentions that the current occupancy rate in Alexandrian Hotels, despite the end of the holiday of Eid el Fitr, still exceeds 90 percent.
