As part of the Star Alliance network, Egyptian national airline EGYPTAIR has declared the addition of new direct routes for 2023. Among these is a July departure from Cairo to Manchester, which is serviced five times per week via B737-800NG aircraft and provides business class.
Additionally, EGYPTAIR initiated flights between Cairo and Delhi in August, utilising A320 aircraft for these journeys four times per week.
The airline’s ambitious plan to link Egypt with numerous nations around the globe includes an expansion of connections from its main hub in Africa to Europe and Asia. This route addition coincides with these efforts. Further to the aforementioned new routes, EGYPTAIR has recently expanded its network to include Dhaka, New Jersey, Narita, and New Jersey, Bangladesh, and Narita, Japan, respectively.
Engineer Yehia Zakaria, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of EGYPTAIR Holding Company, asserts:
At EgyptAir we have announced the ambitious plans of the national carrier to enhance its network in Asia. The company aims to introduce two new routes in Cairo/Jakarta, Indonesia, Cairo/Shanghai and China, in the near future.

This strategy aims to provide travellers with a diverse range of travel options, both through the airline’s extensive network of destinations and the global Star Alliance network.
