According to Egyptair’s Chairman & CEO, Captain Sherif Galal, the airline is going through major restructuring. Following the termination of 12 routes the airline was decided to up the frequency on most of its core routes. Most destinations will be served by at least a daily frequency as the airline...Jump to post
Where did you hear this?
Everything indicates it will be in Sharjah?
What's your source?
Why are all three low cost carriers (Air Arabia, Menajet and TransGulf) basing their operations at Sharjah. Is there enough demand, especially with Dubai and Abu Dhabi being so near by. Why not launch from other airports? I know there are these governmental restrictions but isn't launching three ca...Jump to post
Airxliban 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......Jump to post

BA 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 fo...Jump to post
I was wandering when would Airbus or Boeing launch a new family of short range aircraft to replace the A32X and B737 families. I know that both families are doing their jobs very well, but the B737 is based on a 30 year old airframe and A320 was launched over 16 years ago. The reason they are order...Jump to post
Ahlan <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> Thanks for the welcoming I think Egyptair's doing what <acronym title="Macae (MEA / SBME), Brazil">MEA</acronym> did a few years ago, restructuring (but not as drastic). Its good to see they are increasing frequency to Beirut. Only last year they w...Jump to post

korg747 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 mos...Jump to post
Egyptair is planning to become an All-Airbus operator. They are replacing their B777s with A330s and B737-500 with A320s. Eventually they will be operating A320s, A321s, A300s, A330s and A340s. Though there have been rumours that they will purchase Embraer jets for domestic services. We'll have to w...Jump to post
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:- ...Jump to post
Do you know if they will start services to Sharm El Sheikh or Luxor? I mean if they serve Assiut and Alexandria will they be expanding to other cities in Egypt?
Air France has announced it will be doubling its frequency on flights to Cairo, Egypt from the end of March. They currently offer a daily frequency using B777-200s which departs in the morning. They will add another set of daily flights using a mix of A340/A330, which leaves for Cairo in the aftern...Jump to post
