After 13 Years, Prague gets direct connection to Egypt. The first flight of EGYPTAIR to Cairo took place today. The route will operate 3 times a week and will offer exciting connecting flights to other destinations in Africa. The route will be served by a Boeing 737-800 for 154 passengers.

Last year, almost 700,000 passengers travelled between Prague and Egypt. The roots of cooperation with Egypt go back to the days of Czechoslovakia, so that a direct service to Cairo will help promote further development of our countries’ relations and will also be a stimulus for cargo transportation.

With a population of ten million, Cairo is the second most populous city in Africa after Lagos. The capital of Egypt is located on the right bank of the River Nile. Its dominant features are modern skyscrapers and luxury hotels, which are in a juxtaposition to the ancient pyramids located on the left bank in Giza. Cairo’s most visited sights include a number of important museums, the world-famous Khan al-Khalili market, and the 186-metre-high Burj al-Cairo tower, which in good weather offers wonderful views from the observation platform at a height of 140 meters.
