EgyptAir has expanded its network between the UK and Egypt with the start of a five times per week service between Manchester and the Egyptian capital, Cairo. Manchester is the airline’s 81st destination.
Capt Roshdy Zakaria, EgyptAir’s Chairman and CEO, said: “The UK is one of the most important markets in our network and the addition of this new service establishes EgyptAir as the only carrier to operate direct between Manchester and Cairo. It offers our valued customers the advantage of being able to fly direct between Cairo and two important UK hubs, London and Manchester, with a competitive product and convenient flight timings”.
“Cairo is the northern gateway to Africa and our customers in the UK and beyond have convenient access to more than 18 African destinations, in addition to code-share flights to six further destinations, such as Lusaka, Mauritius, Cape Town and Kigali. EgyptAir also operates daily connections to the main business and leisure destinations across the Middle East”.
Cairo is the largest city in the Africa and Middle East region, with a population of around seven million. It is a popular visitor destination with the Great Sphinx and Pyramids of Giza located nearby.
Operated by a Boeing 737-800 aircraft, the service will run Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday every week. www.manchesterairport.co.uk
