Luxor, Egypt: Balloon Rides Start Up Again


According to CNN, hot air balloon rides are going up again at Egypt's Luxor site. The popular tourist feature was closed down six weeks ago after a horrendous accident that resulted in the loss of 19 lives. The rides feature aerial views of the Great Pyramids and other historic sites.

While some tourist balloon companies are still shut down while investigations continue, others may now resume their flights. The government reports that more effective inspections, safety measures and crew training will greatly reduce the dangers in future flights. Additionally, passengers now must sign liability documents accepting the risk of balloon flights.
