Egypt Air Destinations
Egypt Air (www.egyptair.com), sometimes erroneously spelled Egypt Air, is Egypt’s flag carrier airline. Headquartered at Cairo International Airport, Egypt Air operates scheduled cargo and passenger flights to over 75 destinations across Africa, Asia, the Americas, Middle East and Europe.
Established in 1971 in a rebranded and renamed format, Egypt Air inherited the staff, infrastructure, liabilities and assets of United Arab Airlines. The airline’s corporate identity reflects Egypt’s cultural heritage; the logo features Horus, a sky deity featuring prominently in ancient Egyptian mythology.
Ownership and structure
The airline is a state-owned entity operating as if were fully privately owned, thanks to custom legislation that gives its management the ability to operate without government interference. The airline is self-financing, and unlike the likes of South Africa’s flag carrier, South African Airways, does not enjoy any financial backing by the Egyptian government.
Egypt Air underwent a major restructuring in 2002, when it evolved from being a governmental organisation to a holding company with subsidiaries; Egypt Air Express and Sinai Air, among others. The airline also holds a majority stake in Air Cairo (60%), and a minority stake in the Smart Aviation Company (20%).
This development coincided with the establishment of the Egyptian Ministry of Civil Aviation and the launch of an ambitious government strategy to upgrade and modernise its aviation infrastructure and flag carrier. Egypt Air has been a member of the international Star Alliance since 2008, and also became the first African airline to obtain IOSA safety certification in 2004.
The Egypt Air Fleet
Today, in 2016, the Egypt Air fleet comprises over 80 aircraft (subsidiary fleet included); most notably the Airbus A320 and A330, Boeing 737 and 777 ranges. Subsidiary airline Egypt Air Express boasts a fleet of 12 Embraer E-170s.
Following the Egyptian revolution – the so-called Arab Spring, which took place in 2011 – the airline has been focusing on its domestic operations with a view to regain profitability.
Egypt Air has codesharing agreements in place with a range of other Star Alliance members, including Aegean Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, Gulf Air, South African Airways, Swiss International Air Lines as well as Turkish Airlines, Lufthansa and Air India.
