EgyptAir resumed on Friday flights between Borg El-Arab International Airport in the northern goveronorate of Alexandria and Dubai International Airport.
Egypt’s flagship carrier said it will operate three weekly flights between the two airports.
Egypt has resumed international flights in July, after suspending all air travel in March due to coronavirus.
EgyptAir said two weekly flights will be added to Oman’s Muscat; the Jordanian capital of Amman, and South Africa’s Johannesburg, as well as a weekly flight to Rwanda’s Kigali and Ugandan Entebbe.
