The tourist sector in Egypt, despite the beginning of the summer season, has suffered enormous losses: air relations with Russia, the main provider of the resort country, have been suspended since the collapse of A320 in the sky over Sinai. A number of other countries are also still refraining from resuming their citizens ' travel to Egyptian resorts, motivating their decision to the inadequate security measures taken at the country ' s airports. The newly appointed Minister of Tourism of Egypt, Yahya Rashid, believes that there is no need for a ban on flights and requests Moscow to resume direct flights, even though this will be done gradually. In an interview with RIA News Correspondent in Cairo, Rafael Daminov, the head of the department said that some Russians continued to travel to Egypt through third countries and called for not using tourism as a tool for political pressure, but that did not mean restrictions on the part of Russia.
