Posted 1 February 2017 · Add Comment

Nile Air has become the first private Egyptian airline to launch domestic services to the Ancient Egyptian cities of Thebes Luxor and Aswan.

Following the successful launch of flights from Cairo to Sharm El-Sheikh and Hurghada this summer, the airline will continue this expansion by launching year-round services connecting the capital city of Cairo to the ancient cities of Luxor & Aswan from 30th December 2016. The new services will play an important role in developing tourism to Upper Egypt by offering Egyptians living in Cairo and international visitors, quick and conveniently scheduled flights to the historical cities.

Nile Air chief executive officer, Ahmed Aly, said: “As we continue to grow apace in Egypt, we have seen a clear need to increase our existence in the domestic market. We are delighted to introduce our two newest destinations of Luxor & Aswan in support of the revitalization of the Egyptian tourism market to the ancient & spectacular treasures of Upper Egypt.

Services between Cairo and Luxor will be operated three times a week (Monday, Thursday & Friday), whilst Cairo and Aswan will be connected twice per week (Monday and Friday).
