The flights are expected to begin on June 5th.
EgyptAir announced that four weekly flights will be operating on a new direct Dublin-Cairo route on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays as of June 5th. The flight route will be using an Airbus A320neo, which is an entirely new addition to the company’s existing fleet and is scheduled to join the collection as of February. The 142-seat plane will have 16 seats in business class and the remaining 126 in economy.
Air travel between Dublin and Cairo averaged 14,000 passengers in 2019 as the market for travel to the Irish capital continues to grow.
Vincent Harrison, Dublin Airport’s managing director, commented on the new route, saying, “We will be working closely with EgyptAir to promote this new route, which will be welcomed both by businessmen and tourists , as Cairo is the largest city in the Arab world located on the banks of the Nile and the famous pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx are less than a few miles from the city centre.”
