The Miss Belgium candidates were supposed to fly out as early as next Thursday in preparation of January's competition.
Organiser Darline Devos: “We are in talks with the tour operator and are looking at switching the destination to Hurghada, another Egyptian resort."
Meanwhile the prospective Miss Belgiums refuse to be flummoxed by the confusion and are keeping a cool head.
Darline Devos: "I'm getting tons of queries. Above all the girls are anxious for the trip to go ahead. By Monday this should be sorted, but Sharm el-Sheikh no longer seems an option."
