In accordance with its strategy to connect the European continent with the Middle East and Africa through the state-of-the-art Cairo new Terminal 3, EGYPTAIR will operate 3 direct weekly flights to Copenhagen starting from the 1st of October 2010.

The flights will be on Fridays, Sundays, and Wednesdays. EGYPTAIR, in coordination with the Danish authorities, has taken all the necessary steps to facilitate the operation in Copenhagen to serve its customers flying between Cairo, Denmark and the other Scandinavian countries.

“Because of the increasing demand on travel to and from this region, EGYPTAIR took the decision of inaugurating this important route which serves the Egyptian and European investors in both countries.” Said Eng. Hussien Massoud, EGYPTAIR Holding Chairman and CEO. He added “Egypt is the natural link between Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The Danish authorities boost the materialization of the decision to operate the route.”

This step comes in line with EGYPTAIR network expansion plans which aim at covering the widest network of major economic and touristic destinations. This corresponds with what Capt Alaa Ashour, Chairman and CEO of EGYPTAIR Airlines said as he added “We are always looking for the demand of our customers, who are the main pillar on which our expansion depend. We will continue to offer new destinations and more frequencies to meet our customer needs.”

Noteworthy that EGYPTAIR will fly to Copenhagen by its modern B737-800 fleet, which accommodates 24 business class seats in order to meet the demand on business type travel. The seat pitch was increased to hit 48” which exceeds the international norm on medium range aircrafts. Further, the aircraft is equipped with the state-of-art entertainment system with Video – On- Demand (VOD) features and laptop power outlet.
