EgyptAir launches first direct flight from Cairo to Dublin

Ahram Online , Thursday 2 Jun 2022

EgyptAir launched on Thursday a direct flight from Cairo to Ireland’s Dublin for the first time as part of the newly-launched route between the capitals of the two countries.



The Egyptian flag carrier said in a statement that it will operate four weekly flights to and from Dublin using the Airbus A320neo, which provides 16 seats in business class and 126 seats in economy class.

The opening of this new route comes as EgyptAir is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year as the company is keen to expand its air services, the statement said.

EgyptAir called on passengers to book their flights between Cairo and Dublin by contacting customer service via phone at 1717 or through the official website.

Amr Nabil, CEO and chairman of EgyptAir, announced the opening of the new route in February, saying Ireland’s location in Western Europe makes Dublin Airport a strategic hub for travellers to all of Egypt’s tourist destinations.

Managing Director of Dublin Airport Vincent Harrison welcomed the step, hailing Cairo as one of the world’s great cities.

Harrison said the airport will closely cooperate with EgyptAir to promote the new route.

In 2018, Ireland said 50,000 Irish tourists visit Egypt annually.
