EgyptAir is the flag carrier of Egypt and the airline is based at Cairo International Airport.
EgyptAir operates scheduled passenger services to more than 80 destinations in the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas.
EgyptAir flies to many destinations worldwide including Cairo, London, Sohag, Abu Simbel, Juba, Entebbe, Dar-Es-salaam, Lusaka, Barcelona, Madrid, Casablanca, Manchester, Paris, Stockholm, Oslo, Berlin, Sofia, Athens and Istanbul. The airline's logo is Horus, the sky deity in ancient Egyptian methodology.
EgyptAir's fleet consists of a mix of Airbus and Boeing aircraft.
Since 2008, EgyptAir has been a member of Star Alliance. The airline was on the waiting list for approval to be a member of Star Alliance for quite some time and in 2007 the Chief Executive Board of the alliance voted to accept the Egypt based airline as a future member, being the first member airline from an Arab country and the second African one, after South African Airways. The ceremony took place at Cairo International Airport on July 2008, when the carrier became the twenty first member of Star Alliance. This alliance meant an opening for EgyptAir, as they could be able to connect more passengers from Europe to the Middle East, Southeast Asia and even the Far East.

EgyptAir operates a frequent flyer program called EgyptAir Plus to reward regular travellers with EgyptAir.

The purpose of the campaign is to promote local tourism and help develop the country's tourism economic muscle not only by immigrants but also local Egyptians. EgyptAir chairman Safwat Mesallam stated local tour operators are willing to offer four day holidays at competitive prices that include flights with the airline all across Egypt.

EgyptAir subsidiary, Air Cairo, deal with an unruly passenger
Air Cairo, the low cost airline attached to EgyptAir, was put in a difficult situation earlier this week when they had to contend with a passenger assaulting a crew member on an Air Cairo flight which was flying from Hurghada beach resort town in Egypt to Hanover in Germany. The other crew members dealt with the other crew members and passengers to overpower the unruly traveller and tied him to a seat to ensure the safety of the flight. The 27-year-old passenger was later handed over to the German federal police on landing at Hanover International Airport. The assualt was caused by the man locking himself in a toilet cubicle to smoke, breaking ailine violations. When the flight attendent worked to remove him, the assault occured. Well done Air Cairo for dealing with this situation!

Egyptair Celebrates 86th Birthday at Athens Airport
Egyptair Station Manager Wael Ekram; the Regional Director for Greece and Cyprus Salah Tawfic and AIA Director of Communications and Marketing Ioanna Papadopoulou cut the company’s birthday cake.
Egypt’s national carrier Egyptair recently celebrated its 86th birthday during a special ceremony held at the Athens International Airport (AIA).
The Cairo-based carrier and Star Alliance member was established in 1932 on May 7 and was the first airline serving the Middle East and Africa at the time. Today it flies to 70 destinations in 60 countries around the world, carrying more than 11 million passengers every year. The carrier began flights to Athens in 1958.
During the event, Egyptair Regional Director for Greece and Cyprus Salah Tawfic and AIA Director of Communications and Marketing Ioanna Papadopoulou cut the birthday cake for the carrier’s 86th anniversary.
Egyptair’s flight was greeted by a water canon salute at Athens Airport.
“Through team work and with the support of our associates we have managed to overcome many challenges and difficulties. The people of AIA have offered their significant support during the last few years; today’s celebration would not be possible without their valuable help,” Tawfic said.
In 2017 Egyptair carried more than 112,000 passengers between Greece and Egypt through two daily flights connecting Athens with Cairo and two weekly flights between the Greek capital and Alexandria.
“Egyptair is an important valuable associate, offering connections with significant destinations such as Cairo and Alexandria, with which Greece shares numerous common elements of culture and history,” Ioanna Papadopoulou said. “The carrier is also enhancing Athens’ connectivity with the important market of Africa… Our exceptional collaboration will further be enhanced in the future,” she added.
A raffle was also held during the event, which revealed two lucky passengers that won a round-trip business class ticket each, for the destination of their preference within Egyptair’s network.
19th April 2018
EGYPTAIR commenced flights between Cairo (CAI) and Moscow Domodedovo (DME) on 12 April, ending the carrier’s 28-month hiatus of serving the 2,857-kilometre Egypt–Russia capital connection.
Like it did last time round, the carrier will offer a three times weekly service between the two airports, operating the route using a mixture of its 737-800s and short-haul Airbus fleet. Currently no other carrier operates between the two airports, however Aeroflot has also resumed flights between Moscow and Cairo this week, operating three weekly flights between Moscow Sheremetyevo and the Egyptian capital airport.

EgyptAir operates three flights weekly to Moscow
EgyptAir will announce its flight schedule to Russia after the Russian approval, to operate three flights weekly from Cairo International Airport to Moscow starting from February 2018, according to EgyptAir's officials.
All EgyptAir flights will depart every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. In addition, there will be around 20 flights reserved by travel agencies for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Officials of EgyptAir stated that they are working to complete all needed regulations for resuming flights to Russia. Also, the company will send the manager of its Russia-based office to Moscow again in order to practically operate Cairo-Moscow flights.
The Russian Aeroflot airline company has received its Cairo-based office at terminal 2 of Cairo International Airport after many preparations for resuming flights starting from February 2018.
Flights between the two countries were halted in 2015 after a Russian passenger jet crashed in Sinai, killing all 224 people onboard.
Shortly after the crash, the Islamic State’s Sinai branch claimed responsibility for the incident, which occurred in the vicinity of the Sinai insurgency led by IS affiliates following the ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi.
Past December, Russian Transport Minister Maksim Sokolov announced that Cairo International Airport has met the requirements of the Russian aviation security, which paves the way for the resumption of Russian flights to Egypt.

Egypt Air confirms first Bombardier C-Series order in 18 months
Egypt Air announced it intended to buy up to 24 of the Canadian built aircraft at the Dubai Airshow
Egypt Air has confirmed it will buy 12 CS300 aircraft from Bombardier and reserved the right to buy an additional 12 on the same terms at a later date.
Egypt Air has confirmed it will buy 12 CS300 aircraft from Bombardier and reserved the right to buy an additional 12 on the same terms at a later date.
The commitment was originally announced as an understanding between the North African carrier and Bombardier at the Dubai Airshow.
The agreement was widely viewed as a major lifeline for Bombardier. The struggling Canadian aircraft manufacturer was hit by a US Department Justice ruling against the export of C-Series aircraft last year.
Days later, it sold half of the C-Series programme, which hadn’t sold an aircraft in 18 months until the Egypt Air order, to Airbus.
Egypt Air’s CEO has expressed confidence in the aircraft, and is looking to the incoming aircraft as a replacement for regional division Egypt Air Express’ ageing Embraer fleet.
"The CS300's unique profitability profile will allow us to open up new opportunities and fits perfectly into our growth strategy," said Safwat Musallam, Chairman and CEO, EgyptAir." We look forward to integrate this innovative and efficient aircraft to our fleet."
Based on the list price of the CS300 airliner, the firm-order contract would be valued at approximately $1.1 billion.
Should EgyptAir exercise the 12 purchase rights for CS300 aircraft, the contract value would increase to nearly $2.2 billion.

EgyptAir sent first cargo flights to Moscow in two years in November
The statement added that the company intends to send cargo flights to the Russian capital twice a week until the end of February 2018.
The company has been in talks with Russia to resume cargo flights since the crash of the 2015 Metrojet passenger flight over Sinai, said Bassem Gohar, Chairman of EgyptAir.
Gohar added that discussions on resuming EgyptAir Cargo flights were separate from the Civil Aviation Ministry’s efforts to bring back passenger flights from Russia.
In 2015, Moscow suspended civilian air traffic to Egypt after a Russian Metrojet flight crashed over Sinai, killing all 224 people on board. The crash was claimed by an Islamic State-affiliated group as a deliberate terrorist attack.

Air Leisure (AL, Cairo Int'l) is planning to shift its widebody operations to an all-A330 fleet airline.
The Egyptian charter specialist currently operates a single remaining A340-200 - SU-GBM (msn 156) - dry-leased from EgyptAir (MS, Cairo Int'l) which, the sources have said, will be disposed of once the last of three ex-Emirates A330-200s - presumably SU-ALC (msn 392) - enters service. The other two Egyptair A340-200s are currently in storage at Cairo Int'l.
Air Leisure specializes in running charters between China and Egypt as well as scheduled flights between Jeddah and each of Alexandria Borg el Arab, Assiut, Luxor, and Sohag in Egypt.
Egyptair announced that the flotation of the Egyptian pound augmented air carrier EgyptAir's already significant losses to more than LE15 billion. However, Egyptair was able to add nine new airplanes to its fleet. EgyptAir has 31,600 employees working on 62 airplanes, which is higher than international rates. In April 2017, EgyptAir announced it will receive a third Boeing 737 to jon the company's fleet at beginning of May. This addition will be the 22nd model of the same type in the fleet.
The B737/800 NGs is almost six years old and is considered one of the best-selling in the Boeing 737 family as it has several advantages, including low fuel consumption and ability to fly for up to six hours nonstop. EgyptAir has received its first Boeing 737-800 aircraft in December 2016. Safwat Mesallam, chairman of EgyptAir Holding Company, said the plan of upgrading the EgyptAir fleet is targeting a total of 105 aircrafts by the end of 2020 and 156 aircrafts by the end of 2025.
