Egyptair To Trial 4 Routes from Giza SPX

Wed Dec 26, 2018 7:58 pm

Egyptair has announced the launch of 4 domestic routes out of the new Cairo West/Giza Sphinx Airport on a temporary basis between Jan 25 and Feb 9 2019 to coincide with Egyptian half year holidays.
Routes are SPX to HRG, SSH, LXR, and ASW, all operated by Embraer E170 aircraft. Each route will be operated a few times over the 2 week period.
Flights currently bookable on www.egyptair.com but not yet on Expedia etc as the SPX code is not yet recognized.

That's great!

Shame Egypt doesn't have open skies with the EU.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Egyptian government will promote SPX as a lower-cost alternative and attract the likes of Ryanair, easyjet etc.

Sadly presently they'd only be able to fly from the countries their AOCs are in. E.g., FR Ireland and EZY UK, Switzerland, and Austria. If Egypt had open skies with the EU they could fly from all over the EU.
