Egypt Air (MS) has announced air service resumption from its Cairo hub to Europe from the first of July 2020.
MS announced on twitter that “EGYPTAIR announces the resumption of its regular international flights to several destinations starting from the first of July. Flights schedule will be announced during the upcoming days in accordance with a specific standards”.
EgyptAir like most airlines during this pandemic received a $128 million loan from the Egyptian government to ensure the airline remains afloat. MS suspended operations in March when authorities imposed travel restrictions as a precautionary measure to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Civil Aviation Minister Mohammed Manar said “flights will be resumed gradually with some states”. He added that “all aircraft have been comprehensively sterilized and only dry meals and canned beverages will be offered”.
During the lockdown period, MS has been operating repatriation and cargo flights. In another tweet the airline said it will operate cargo and repatriation flights to Paris, Vienna, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Munich for EU residents only, with a separate flight to London for UK citizens and residents.
