EgyptAir announced on Sunday that it will resume direct flights to five additional destinations starting October 1.
Flights will start again between Cairo and Muscat (Oman), Amman (Jordan), Kigali (Rwanda), Johannesburg (South Africa) and Entebbe (Uganda).
The expansion is a part of EgyptAir’s plan to gradually bring back flights to many countries around the world.
The airline will offer two flights per week to Muscat starting October 1, two flights per week to Amman starting October 4, one flight per week to Kingali and two to Johannesburg starting October 8, and one flight per week to Entebbe starting October 9.
Three flights per week between Alexandria and Dubai will also resume on October 9.
The airline is offering special discounts for flights to and from these destinations during the first week of operation.
An airline statement said that customers can enjoy traveling to Muscat, Amman, Kigali, and Entebbe on the airline’s new Boeing 737-800 aircraft, while the Johannesburg leg uses the Airbus 330/300, which can seat up to 301 people.
With the addition of these five cities, EgyptAir has resumed flights to a total of 47 destinations. The airline is striving to provide more options for its customers while upholding the necessary health and safety protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
