According to a statement, Minister El-Masry said the award is testament to the success of the Egyptian civil aviation system and will contribute to increasing the volume of investments in the aviation sector.

The minister pointed out that the achievement is also an indication that the Egyptian airports apply the highest standards of air safety and security measures in accordance with international standards.

According to the statement, the ACI praised the Luxor Airport, saying the selection was based on an intensive evaluation process in terms of infrastructure, air traffic operations and safety procedures.

The ACI announced that the award will be presented during the General Assembly of the Council, which takes place from 14 to 17 October in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

Egypt is set to host in the semi-annual ACI Conference and Exhibition in March 2019 in Luxor.
