For now, Egyptian airports remain closed and flights remain suspended until the 23rd of April. The airports' lockdown initially started mid-March but has been renewed ever since. Among the lockdowns and the travel bans worldwide, Egypt has been operating exceptional flights to bring back nationals that have gotten stranded in countries around the world amid the COVID-19 lockdowns. The Ministry of Immigration has been receiving requests from Egyptians around the world who want to travel back to Egypt, and they’ve arranged more flights accordingly. The exceptional flights planned to carry Egyptians home are scheduled until the end of April, so it seems like the lockdown is going to last for a bit longer.

They’ve previously defined the criteria for Egyptians that are considered stuck abroad and are eligible to board these flights. If you’re one, these are 22 announced flights coming in from around the world. Tickets to these flights are to be bought through the respective Egyptian embassies, and they will all arrive at Marsa Alam where passengers will be quarantined for a period of two weeks. Before boarding, passengers have to pay the flight ticket plus quarantine fees for the hotels in Marsa Alam -- EGP 1500 for a single room and EGP 750 per person for a double room.
