EgyptAir, the country’s flag carrier, has scheduled four weekly direct flights from Cairo to New Delhi. The airline will use its A320neo aircraft on the route, providing two-cabin service with 16 business class seats and 126 economy class seats.
On Fridays and Sundays, flight MS973 will leave Cairo at 11:40 and land in Delhi at 20:45; on Thursdays and Saturdays, flight MS975 will leave Cairo at 23:50 and land in Delhi at 8:55 the following morning.
India is a significant market and country for us. In addition to the current operations to Mumbai, we are excited to begin flights from Cairo to Delhi. This will not only give travellers a new option, but it will also improve Egypt’s relations with India and encourage commerce and travel between the two nations, according to Capt. Mohamed Moussa, Chairman & CEO of EgyptAir.
A320neo aircraft will fly the route between Cairo and Delhi. The average age of EgyptAir’s eight A320neo aircraft is barely 1.8 years. The airline now has six Boeing 787-9s in its sizable widebody fleet, and two more Dreamliners are due in the next couple of years. EgyptAir’s current fleet reduces emissions by 60% while cutting fuel consumption by about 20% compared to earlier generations.
