Flights to and from Egypt
Air Sinai is an Egyptian airline based in Cairo that operates scheduled passenger services from its airport hub at Cairo International Airport (CAI). Air Sinai primarily operates services between Egypt and Israel and has been connecting the two countries for over 35 years. Air Sinai currently flies a service between Cairo International Airport (CAI) and Ben Gurion International Airport (TLV), Tel Aviv, four times a week using two unmarked Embraer ERJ-170 aircraft which it wet-leases from its parent company, EgyptAir.
Cairo International Airport is also a hub for EgyptAir, EgyptAir Express, Nile Air and soon SkyBird Airlines. It also operates services for a number of different airlines, including Air Go Egypt, British Airways, Eritrean Airlines, Iraqi Airways and Royal Jordanian Airlines.
Originally, Air Sinai operated as its own company, flying one scheduled service between Cairo and Tel Aviv — a route that EgyptAir was unable to operate due to political reasons. For years, Air Sinai used either a Boeing 737-200, Fokker F27 Friendship, and later a Boeing 707-320C aircraft to carry passengers. In 2002, Air Sinai terminated operations as its own airline and began operating as a paper airline for EgyptAir. Air Sinai leases all of its aircraft from EgyptAir and the aircraft doesn't feature any markings identifying Air Sinai nor Egypt Air.
