Production subsidy

The government of Egypt increased for USD 1'000, its flight subsidies for international charter flights carrying passengers to the local destinations of Luxor, Aswan, Marsa Matrouh, Taba, and Alamein.

The international charter flight subsidies for these specific destinations were initially introduced as part of the Regular and Low-Cost Charter Flights Incentive Program, which core scope was to boost Egyptian tourism overall. This program was initially established in 2016 for a one year period and then later in 2017 it was prolonged until 31 October 2018.

The original subsidies for international charter flights in the cities of  Luxor, Aswan, Marsa Matrouh, Taba, and Alamein amounted to USD 2'000 per flight. The newly increased subsidies for international charter flights in these destinations, however, do amount to USD 3'000 per flight.

Local and foreign airlines are eligible for the original and the increased subsidies. Furthermore, the original and increased flight subsidies are only applicable to flights carrying a certain minimum number of passengers -- i.e. a minimum number of passengers corresponding to 50% of their total flight capacity.
