Egypt’s flag carrier EgyptAir plans to launch year-round nonstop flights scheduled services between Ireland and Egypt even as travel rebounds in a (hopefully) post-COVID-19 world.

The route from Cairo (CAI) will begin on June 2, operating four times per week using Airbus A320neo aircraft. Flights will be on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

The two countries have been without a non-stop connection for more than six years with Thomson Airways (now TUI Airways) last serving the route in January 2016 when it cut its year-round Dublin-Sharm El-Sheikh (SSH) service.

The route is now expected to attract leisure and business traffic, serving Arab communities in Ireland as well as opening up new destinations in Africa and the Middle East for Irish passengers on Egyptair’s network of more than 75 destinations.

On his part, captain Amr Nabil, Egyptair chairman, and CEO, expects the connection to attract leisure and business traffic, as well as serving Arab communities in Ireland.

He added that the route would also open up new destinations in Africa and the Middle East for Irish passengers on Egyptair’s network beyond Cairo.

“We’re very pleased to welcome Egyptair to Ireland and to add Cairo to Dublin Airport’s extensive route network,” Dublin Airport MD Vincent Harrison said. “Cairo is one of the world’s great cities and we will be working closely with Egyptair to promote this new route, which will be welcomed by both business and leisure travelers.”
