Egyptair will be improving its links with Japan. It serves both Tokyo and Osaka.

Currently it has twice weekly flights to Tokyo via Bangkok and Manilla, but from March they will be upgraded to 3 direct weekly flights, going up to 4 flights a week using A340s. The flights will go as follows:

MS864:-
Departs Cairo: 17:45 / Arrives Tokyo: 12:55 (next day)
MS865:-
Departs Tokyo: 15:30 / Arrives Cairo: 22:10



The Osaka flights will be upgraded from an A340 to a B777

MS862:-
Departs Cairo: 17:35 / Arrives Osaka: 11:55 (next day)
MS863:-
Departs Osaka: 13:55 / Arrives Cairo: 19:40

Sound good!

I have an OT question, How is MS 's Fleet plans? Do they still want to getrid of the 777s?



Please excuse my English!

I don't believe MS is planning to get rid of the 777s anymore. It was being considered, but it seems they voted against it.

Good move.

Is there that much demand for flights from JPN to EGY??? I know the JAPS love to go sightseeing so EGYPT is an excellent place to do that but still is there that much demand? or will MS be reliant on capturing the transit pax market from JPN to CDG-LHR-FRA and other European and African cities?

I have just flown with Egyptair from Jeddah and I asked one of the stewards whether they were retiring the B777s. According to him the airline is disposing and replacing their Boeing jets (777s and 737s) with A320s and A330s. He said that Boeing has a 'bad' reputation here in Egypt since most crashes involve Boeing aircraft.

Behramjee

Egyptair is going through major restructuring and have dropped unprofitable routes whilst increasing flights on routes where there is demand. It is also very possible that they are trying to capture some transit passengers as they offer good on-board services at very competitive low airfares.

Behramjee,

Cairo is one of the largest cities in the world with a population of 16 million. Egypt has 100 million people.

I'd say there is demand for flights to every region of the world from Egypt.....

Horus,

Speaking of increasing of flights on high demand routes. This post of mine I made a while ago might interest you, go ahead and reply if you want:

Welcome to the forums by the way! It's good to finally see an Egyptian member on Airliners.net  Smile

Thanks for the welcoming

I think Egyptair's doing what MEA did a few years ago, restructuring (but not as drastic). Its good to see they are increasing frequency to Beirut. Only last year they were operating 5 flights a week using mainly B737-500s and now its 10 flights with A320s (must be a lot of travelling between these two habayib).

p.s. Egypt's population is only 72 million not 100. Big grin

Horus,

Were they really flying only 5x weekly to BEY? Did they also have the 1x weekly Cairo - Alexandria - Beirut flight or no?

I flew CAI-BEY back in March on MEA. It was a nice flight. The flight wasn't full though because the war in Iraq was starting...

Regards

Yeah they operated 5 flight from Cairo to Beirut and 1 flight from Alex to Beirut. There were no flights on Tuesdays.

I've never been to Beirut (the only major Arab Middle Eastern city I haven't been too yet).

Salam alekom Horus

I flew MS return from NRT to BKK via Manila some twelve years ago on a 743 Combi. The cabin service and food exceded my expecations and I would fly with them again readily.

On the flight we took with them, there were many young leisure travellers (like myself) using it to get to the Thai beaches etc from winter in Japan. They had the most inexpensive fares from Japan at the time. I wonder if they'll be losing some of their market by flying exclusively direct?

No sorry, but they have really improved Terminal 1 (Egyptair's Terminal). I flew from there last month to go to Jeddah. They have really modernised it-the final part to refurbished is the check-in area. Terminal 2 will get the next 'face-lift'. Work on Terminal 3 should begin soon once bidding for which construction firm is going to get the contract is over. Passenger numbers at Cairo Airport only dropped by 0.5% following the 9/11 attacks, so there is pressure to finish the new terminal quickly to meet growing demand . It is even more vital if Egypt wins the bid to host the 2010 World Cup.

Sounds good Horus.

I saw some of the renovated area in Terminal 1, it looks great.

Do you know of any website where I can get more information on Cairo Airport or specifically the future Terminal 3?

Does Cairo Airport have an official website?

I can see your point but I am sure they wouldn't have done it if demand on the NRT-Manilla-BKK flights was still there, especially since they are restructuring the airline to make it more competitve and profitable.

Who knows only time will tell if this was a good move...

Horus,

I didn't fly BEY-CAI.

My entire itinerary took me DEN-LHR on British Airways, then LHR-CAI on British Airways, I spent a week in Cairo, then I flew CAI-BEY on MEA, spent another week in Beirut, then I flew BEY-LHR on British Airways (Operated by British Mediterranean), then LHR-DEN on British Airways.

Thats a lot of travelling just to stay a week in Cairo and Beirut. Why didn't you fly MEA to Paris and connect with an AF flight to DEN?

zayyak ya horus,

I flew IST-CAI, CAI-LXR and ASW-CAI back in 1997 all on egyptair and remember thinking that the airport needed a major renovation.

Is this the terminal 1 which has now been renovated that you speak of?

And of course, ahlan wa sahlan to you on a.net

Airxliban,

Yes it is still there. I think there are 3 or 4.

My gosh, how depressing that comparison is. One year it's all nice and beautiful flying proudly and the next it's sitting in the middle of the desert deteriorating...

So sad....

Regards

Yeah its still there along with its sistership. When I was there last week, they were joined by another B707 but I couldn't tell which airline it belonged to.
There were rumours that one will be restored and put on display once the new terminal is opened and other may become a resturant...there are only rumours, nothing confirmed.
