EgyptAir to add Dublin to its network from June 5
January 15, 2020: EgyptAir plans to launch direct Dublin - Cairo service from June 5. The new route will operate four times per week and will be Ireland’s first scheduled air service to Egypt.
The new Dublin-Cairo service will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays with an A320neo aircraft that is due to join the EgyptAir fleet in February.
“We’re very pleased to welcome EgyptAir to Ireland and to add Cairo to Dublin Airport’s extensive route network,” said Dublin Airport MD Vincent Harrison. “Cairo is one of the world’s great cities and we will be working closely with EgyptAir to promote this new route, which will be welcomed by both business and leisure travellers.”
EgyptAir chairman and CEO Captain Ahmed Adel said he was delighted that EgyptAir would have four weekly flights linking the capital cities of Egypt and Ireland from later this year.
The Egyptian Ambassador in Dublin, Khaled Sarwat said the new route would further enhance and deepen the bilateral relations between Egypt and Ireland and boost the mutual investment, trade, and tourism between our two friendly nations.
With a metropolitan area population of 20 million, Cairo is the largest city in the Arab world. The market for air travel between Dublin and Cairo is increasing, with an estimated 14,000 passengers travelling between the two cities last year. EgyptAir also has an extensive route network from its hub in Cairo to onward destinations in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
EgyptAir carried more than nine million passengers in 2019 on a fleet of 68 aircraft. It operates more than 70 routes, including services to 18 African destinations, 17 in the Middle East, seven in Asia-Pacific and three in North America.
