Blu-express.com is looking to fly to Red Sea against easyJet.com
The joint convention of the two players make a team against the arrival of low-cost carrier easyJet.com to Sharm el Sheikh. Swantour chairman, Georges Adly Zaki: "We have presented the problem to the Egypt Minister of Tourism." The Blue Panorama #1 men Franco Pecci, open to possible future scenarios: "We also provide the operating weekly with Blu-Express"
Unity is strength. This is the motto of the convention jointly organized by Swantour and Blue Panorama at Laguna Vista Swan Club Sharm el Sheikh.
To make it even more united in the relationship between the two players was the landing of the "bogeyman" easyJet destination on the Egyptian market, which could go to take over market shares to the carrier airline and the charter tour operator, under the agreement signed with Booking . com. "Where easyJet positions itself hurts - that the impact comment left by Blue Panorama chairman, Franco Pecci -. In the future we may also think of imagining to fly two or three flights a week with our low cost arm Blu-Express.com programming weekly departures but always in cooperation with tour operators, thereby giving more flexibility to the passenger who will stay three or four nights. One thing is certain: we will do our best to counter this new onslaught of easyJet. "
On the same line is Georges Adly Zaki, Swan Tour chairman, who claims to have reported the "problem" to the Egypt Minister of Tourism: "Opening up this type of destination can become a big problem, although I do not think you can have great impact in the short term. But I think that, if the British tourist the flight could be an alternative for the Italian traveler to start with a low cost without a package on a Middle Eastern country becomes a bit more complicated. In the long run, though - admits the number one tour operator - could create some problems for operators. "
