Egypt stands to lose 2.2 billion Egyptian pounds ($280 million) a month from Britain and Russia's decision to suspend flights after the Russian plane crash in the Sinai Peninsula, Tourism Minister Mohammad Hisham Abbas Zazou said Wednesday.Zazou said Russian and British holidaymakers accounted for two-thirds of tourist traffic to Sharm el-Sheikh, while Russians alone made up half the tourists in Egypt's other main Red Sea destination, Hurghada.Citing what he described as the negative impact of Western media coverage of the plane crash, Zazou said he planned a $5 million public relations campaign to promote Egypt in Britain and Russia.
