Well, for Egypt, I would say that Booking.com has been long investing in this market. We have been establishing connections and partnerships with partners across Egypt. It’s been known for Egypt to be a tour operator destination, especially for resorts like Rixos Sharm El Sheikh. So, the online presence was not that much of a focus for partners recently. With the changes happening in the flights and having it as an open option for any little lost-cost carriers to arrive, it caused a massive increase in our presence and partners’ interest in being on Booking.com with better visibility and competitiveness.
