Red Sea Ports Authority Chairman Ayman Saleh announced the re-operation of the maritime navigation line between Egypt's Port Tawfiq and Saudi Arabia's Jeddah harbor after a 13-year.

In a statement on Thursday, Saleh said the Port Tawfiq-Jeddah line was suspended after the tragedy of the sinking of As Salam 98 ferryboat in 2006.

Its reopening will create thousands of jobs, boost trade and encourage navigation at the port, he said.
