Fri, Aug. 11, 2017
CAIRO - 11 August 2017: Nile Air has ranked second in the UK-based OAG list of top ten airlines in Cairo; a first not only for the private airliner but also for Egyptian airlines to occupy the first two positions.

Nile Air, the biggest private airline in Egypt, hit impressive growth of 32 per cent in 2017, up from 87 flights weekly in July 2016 to 115 flights year on year, according to the air travel intelligence company.

“Over the last 6 years we have opened new routes to locations never served before and added flights to key regional cities where demand exceeded current offering… [Nile Air and its team] play a pivotal role in developing Egypt’s aviation market with direct impact on the economy, tourism and employment in the country,” said CEO Ahmed Aly in a statement.

The airline is reaching for another first by an Egyptian airline company by recently ordering an Airbus A321neo to add to its fleet of Airbus A320&A321 to cater for even more passenger comfort, according to a Wednesday statement.

Holidaymakers and businesses can fly between Cairo, Sharm el-Sheikh, Hurghada, Luxor and Aswan on board Nile Air’s modern aircrafts. It flies to over 20 domestic and international destinations in the Gulf Cooperation Council states, Southern Europe, Asia and Africa, with plans to expand its reach in the near future.

The airline, which ranks after the national carrier of Egypt Air, offers the best on time performance of all Egyptian airlines, the statement said, as well as a dedicated business class product and an all-inclusive product in economy class at its base in Cairo Airport and Borg al-Arab Airport in Alexandria.
