EGYPTAIR has announced it will offer a new direct service from Manchester Airport to Cairo from next month. Travellers from the city who will be looking for a new adventure will soon be able to ticket off this bucket list travel destination when flights start on July 15.
Cairo is close to the world-famous sights such as the pyramids and the sphinx of giza which are all in easy reach for tourists. The route will be the only flights to Cairo leaving the UK outside of London that will have a direct link to Egypt’s capital city.
Flights will leave Manchester Airport five times a week, including every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 2.30pm each day. EGYPTAIR will operate services taking 154 passengers to the Egyptian capital each flight.
Chris Woodroofe, managing director of Manchester Airport, said: “Having a direct route to Cairo is fantastic news for travellers in our region, giving them a straightforward means of visiting one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world.
“This link also offers businesses in our region access to a fast-growing market and adds another in-demand route to our growing network, cementing our place as the UK’s global gateway in the North.
“I am sure this service will be really popular with passengers and we look forward to working with EGYPTAIR to deliver a high-quality service.”
Mohamed Moussa, chairman and C.E.O of EGYPTAIR, said: “Manchester is one of the largest airports in the UK and is increasingly one of the most in-demand destinations for our customers.
“In the domestic market, EGYPTAIR delivers its customers seamless connections to Egypt’s top leisure and touristic destinations; namely Luxor, Aswan, Sharm El-Sheikh and Hurghada, with a number of daily frequencies to meet the needs of the leisure travellers.
“In addition, being a main hub to Africa, the Middle East and the Far East, Cairo International Airport offers various connections to passengers from Manchester to explore the world, with EGYPTAIR serving more than 70 destinations worldwide.”
