AIR CAIRO STARTS BIWEEKLY FLIGHTS TO PROMOTE TOURISM IN EGYPT, PARTICULARLY FROM ARAB GULF COUNTRIES. AIRLINE PLANS TO EXPAND FLEET AND SEATING CAPACITY FOR FUTURE TRAVEL TO EGYPTIAN TOURIST SPOTS.
Air Cairo has announced the commencement of biweekly flights between several cities in Egypt, according to a statement from the airline. This move is aligned with the Ministry of Civil Aviation’s goal of promoting tourism to Egypt, especially from Arab Gulf countries.
The first flights on the new routes have already operated at a capacity exceeding 95%, thanks to the recent easing of entry visa restrictions on foreign visitors to Sharm El-Sheikh. Air Cairo’s latest E190 aircraft are being utilized for these flights, as stated by the chairman of the airline’s board of directors, Hussein Sharif.
The airline collaborated with numerous hotels in Sharm El-Sheikh to support tourism and attract Arab visitors to Egyptian destinations. In the future, the airline plans to expand its air fleet and network by scheduling more flights and increasing seating capacity to various Egyptian tourist spots.
