Egypt’s national carrier, EgyptAir, has announced it will soon be adding the service to its fleet, giving the airline more customers.
The announcement comes amid a recent increase in demand from the UAE, where EgyptAir operates its fleet.
The service is available from 9am to 9pm and will cost a $12.99-per-mile fee, a service that’s a little cheaper than its regional rivals, Emirates and EgyptAir.
EgyptAir is offering an introductory rate of $12 per mile for the first five minutes, and a $25-per day rate for the next three days.
That’s far cheaper than most regional carriers, and is likely the most popular way for customers to get around the country.
Egyptair’s initial fleet of 20 Airbus A320neos, which are currently being delivered to Dubai and Abu Dhabi, will be replaced with 20 Airbus 737 MAX planes, with more to follow in the coming months.
Egypt is EgyptAir’s second-largest carrier, behind Emirates, and has a strong foothold in the Middle East and the Arabian Peninsula.
Egypt has a long-term goal to expand its regional and international routes, and the airline has been aggressively pursuing more customers and more routes, even going so far as to take a $5 billion equity stake in EgyptAir last year.
But as the economy has become more stable and the country’s tourism industry has grown, Egypt has struggled to meet those needs.
Egypt’s economy has shrunk for the past two years, and its growth rate has slowed significantly, according to the International Monetary Fund.
In addition, Egypt’s domestic airline, Air France-KLM, has experienced a string of financial problems.
Egypt, which is home to the countrys first Egyptian-flagged airport, the Red Sea, is a major tourist destination for travelers, and many airlines offer direct flights to and from the Red and Blue Seas.
In the past, Egyptair has struggled with its growing passenger base, which it says is the result of a lack of good options for travelers.
The airline has expanded its service to serve its regional partners in the UAE and the rest of the Arab world, including Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.
The new EgyptAir Express service will be available for domestic passengers from Monday, September 5.
The carrier has also said that it will be expanding its service from the country to the Emirates and Abudhabi markets, starting next month.
The Delta Air Lines carrier has said it will offer similar services to its Egyptian counterpart.
