Travco Travel topped the list of tourism companies in terms of tourist arrivals in 2014, having brought in 700,000 tourists, according to Public and Media Relations Manager Yara Rizkallah.

Rizkallah said the company is working to increase the number of those arriving from Western Europe considering that this is company’s main market, especially France, Germany, and the UK.

Travco Travel operates and owns around 46 floating and non-floating hotels and resorts in the Red Sea, South Sinai, and the North Coast.

Despite a relative improvement in the number of arrivals last year, Egypt has suffered decreasing numbers of tourists over the past 4 years according to Rizkallah, who added that ‘’the decline in arrivals to Egypt negatively impacted the number of tourists that Travco aims to bring annually’’
