Egypt's Minister of Civil Aviation Abdel-Aziz Fadel speaks with Reuters TV during an interview in his office at Cairo Airport, September 5, 2013. The ongoing political crisis in Egypt has hit the once vibrant tourism industry hard, devastating a critical part of the country's economy. And with visitors scared away by civil strife in the aftermath of the ouster of President Mohamed Mursi, Egypt's national airliner, EgyptAir has been hit hard by the tourism slowdown. The airline has taken the brunt of losses in the tourism sector, losing billions of pounds in revenue per year in the two and a half years since the uprising that toppled former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
