EasyJet Holidays reports Egypt bounce-back

Traffic to the Egypt section of the EasyJet Holidays website is continuing to bounce back to pre-revolution interest levels, the operator claims.

Although EasyJet's airline seat sales were maintained over the period of the revolution in the country, operator sales across the industry were impacted.

The site saw an increase in traffic to its Egypt pages of 10% in May and a further 20% during June.

Traffic to its ‘2012 Holidays in Egypt’ page saw a rise of almost 300% from May to June.

The recovery continued with the first 10 days of July seeing an increase in traffic and bookings up by more than 15% year on year.

Sharm El Sheikh, which suffered less disruption than other areas of the country, is seeing steady web traffic increases, growing by 30% and 20% for May and June respectively.

General manager Mandy Round said: “While there was a temporary drop in bookings following the troubles, you can see a spike in interest that coincided with the elections in May and it has continued to thrive.

“It is not surprising that the destination remains resilient as it offers year-round sunshine, quality hotels and well as the cultural aspects and some of the best diving in the world.”
