Ahram Online , Sunday 11 Feb 2024

EgyptAir denied on Sunday that its tickets booked inside Egypt are paid for in US dollars, after someone on social media claimed two days ago they could not pay for a ticket on EgyptAir's website in Egyptian pounds, paying in US dollars instead.

“EgyptAir wishes to confirm its commitment to implementing all instructions issued by the Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority, including issuing flight tickets from within Egypt to external destinations in the local currency, the Egyptian pound,” said EgyptAir in its official statement on Sunday.

Additionally, EgyptAir will not issue any tickets from within Egypt for flights originating from outside the country, Egypt’s National air carrier said.

This comes after a woman on social media claimed two days ago that she was unable to book a ticket and pay for it in Egyptian pounds through the EgyptAir website and that the flight tickets were allegedly paid for in US dollars instead of Egyptian pounds.
