EGYPTAIR: Bridging ancient civilizations and modern destinations

Established in 1932, EGYPTAIR has become the first airline in the Middle East and Africa and the seventh in the world to join IATA. The historic international airline is presenting its offer to visitors at ITB China this year.

21 years ago, EGYPTAIR made its first flight to Beijing, playing a pivotal role in linking two great ancient civilizations by connecting China and Egypt. This first step was then followed by the airline’s expansion into the region of Guangzhou with a daily flight, Hangzhou with three weekly flights and now Shanghai which will operate four weekly flights from July 2024. Through these connections, EGYPTAIR seeks to enhance the deep-rooted economic, political and touristic ties between Egypt and China.

EGYPTAIR flies to more than 70 destinations in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, the Far East and North America and over 67 more destinations through codeshare agreements as well as over 1,200 destinations globally thanks to its Star Alliance membership. EGYPTAIR is now reaching new destinations with its expansion and fleet modernisation plan, aiming to make the travel experience for all passengers seamless through its hub in Cairo International Airport. EGYPTAIR also operates multiple daily flights to Egypt’s top leisure destinations connected to its international network with connections to Luxor, Aswan, Sharm El- Sheikh, and Hurghada.

EGYPTAIR is continuously developing its services to make travelling more convenient for passengers, offering digital services like online booking, online and self-check-in, seat selection and excess baggage allowance. In addition to this, passengers can now enjoy Wi-Fi and mobile connectivity on selected aircraft types.

In order to adapt to today’s traveller’s needs, the airline’s frequent flyer programme EGYPTAIR Plus offers members many travel benefits including earning and redeeming miles on EGYPTAIR flights and Star Alliance member airlines, access to over 1,000 lounges worldwide, priority airport check-in, priority baggage handling, priority boarding and more depending on the tier level.
