The Association of Egyptian Travel Agencies banned tourism flights from and to China until further notice as a precaution after the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus, the association announced in a statement on Sunday.

The association canceled all the Chinese tourism companies' bookings in Egypt’s Sharm El-Sheikh, Hurghada and Aswan, the statement continued.

The ban could affect the tourism revenues as China allocates 10 percent of all inbound tourism to Egypt, said member at the association Osama Munir.
