Egypt denies 55% drop in air traffic

Egypt: Egyptian aviation officials have denied reports that passenger traffic at Cairo International Airport fell by 55% during the past few weeks of unrest, Daily News Egypt has reported. A report by Dutch news agency DPA said that traffic fell to “its lowest ever,” which pushed six airlines to cancel their flights to and from Cairo, calling it profitless. “55 % is a horrible decrease, and there is no withdrawal in number of passengers,” said the PR director of Cairo International Airport, Ahmed Saleh. “We are functioning properly, especially since we are in the Umrah season.” []
