Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry urges Saudi Arabia Airlines to assist more than 4,000 Saudis stranded in Egypt.
Arab News reports that the tourists are stuck because they cannot find seats on Saudia or EgyptAir.
“Saudia has to intervene urgently to resolve this problem by increasing flights between Saudi Arabia and Egypt,” Nasser Al-Tayar, chairman of the committee of travel and tourist agencies at the chamber of commerce said.
According to Al-Tayer, EgyptAir has already increased the number of its flights to Saudi Arabia, and he appealed for Saudia to do the same.
“They will not be able to go back to work on time, whether they are in the public or private sector,” he warned.
