Well it seems the Airbus 300-600ST Beluga will make it's first visit to Egypt, when the aircraft flies to Alexandria to pick up Ancient Egyptian articfacts for the "Egypt’s Sunken Treasures" exhibition. The flight will take the priceless articfacts (some of which weigh several tons) to Berlin where they will be exibited in Martin-Gropius-Bau between May and September. Beluga will then transport the artifacts from Berlin to Paris in December for exibition in the Grand Palais, Paris.
Does anyone have any more information on these flights like dates and times. I assume Beluga will use Alexandria's Borg Al Arab Airport (HBE) despite it's distance to the Mediterranean city due to Al Nozha's (downtown airport) short runway.
