Air Arabia Egypt has held an official launch ceremony in Cairo prior to its first commercial flight from Alexandria to Khartoum, which will be followed by flights to Kuwait, Amman and Beirut.
A joint venture between Air Arabia and the Travco Group, Air Arabia Egypt plans to expand further its range of destinations from Alexandria Burj Al Arab Airport to key cities across the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.
Adel Ali, group chief executive officer of Air Arabia, commented, “We are extremely pleased to announce the launch of operations of Air Arabia Egypt, the newest member of the rapidly growing Air Arabia family of companies. Complementing our existing operations in the United Arab Emirates and Morocco, this new carrier will provide the same consistently high level of service, operational reliability and value-for-money fares that have become the hallmark of Air Arabia. We thank the Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority and the management of Burj Al Arab International Airport as well as all our strategic partners for marking the launch of Air Arabia Egypt.”
