Over 60,000 trips to Egypt cancelled by Nordic tour operators

Major tour operators in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark have cancelled at least 60,000 trips to Egypt through the winter season that lasts until April, due to recent unrest, the Associated Press has reported. Last week, charter companies and travel organisers flew back hundreds of Scandinavian holidaymakers from resorts in Egypt and halted all tours there until mid-October. The move came in the wake of Nordic governments' revised travel advisories warning against all nonessential travel to Egypt.
