CAIRO: A Chinese flight carrying a group of tourists landed in Cairo on Friday for the first time since the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, Egyptian media reported.

The Sichuan Airlines arrived at Cairo International Airport from China’s Chengdu city with 137 passengers on board, including 28 tourists.

The move comes a week after China’s Foreign Minister Qin Gang visited Cairo in a multi-leg African tour, where he discussed increasing Chinese tourism to Egypt with his counterpart Sameh Shoukry.
