Charter Plane Emergency Landing In CAI

Thu Jul 29, 2004 10:21 pm

Just read on a German news page that an aircraft operated by Air Cairo made an emergency landing in CAI after the pilot reported problems. It was on it's way from HRG to CGN. A lot of Germans on board so it made the news over here.

It would either be the A321 or the TU-154. i think it's the Airbus.
Please excuse my English!

It was an A321 of Air Cairo that was operating to Cologne. The flight was diverted due to a sick passenger on-board (don't have an exact cause yet). The flight was delayed for 4 hours.


Korg747, Air Cairo only operate A321s. Air Cairo is the newest Egyptian charter airline, 40 per cent owned by EgyptAir, with the remaining ownership split into three 20 per cent shares held by Banque du Caire, the National Bank of Egypt and an Egyptian businessman. Abdel-Hamid.

Cairo Aviation (formerly known as Air Cairo) operate a mixture of Tu-204s (passenger and cargo). The owner owns 49% of the Tupolev company.

So Air Cairo and Cairo Aviation are 2 different private airlines.


p.s. Korg747, there are no Tu-154s in Egypt
