Air Cairo has launched regular flights between Egypt’s Red Sea resort of Sharm el Sheikh and Danish capital Copenhagen, the Egyptian Ministry of Civil Aviation said Monday.
Sharm el Sheikh airport is scheduled to receive the first flight from Copenhagen with 153 tourists onboard, the official MENA news agency quoted the ministry’s statement as saying.
Air Cairo, the low fare subsidiary of EgyptAir, plans to increase its fleet of aircraft to 10 planes by the end of 2017, the report said.
Currently, Air Cairo operates flights between Eygpt and 16 cities in 10 European countries, in addition to eight cities in five Arab states.
Air Cairo launched its first flight between Armenia and Egypt’s Red Sea resorts of Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh last week.
