A Long-Awaited Connection: After 13 Years, Prague Gets Direct Flight to Cairo

From 9 July 2024, Václav Havel Airport Prague will, once again, handle direct flights to Cairo.

The national carrier of Egypt, EGYPTAIR, will operate the connection to the Egyptian capital three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays.

The route will also offer interesting options for catching connecting flights to another 75 destinations within EGYPTAIR’s network, including cities in Egypt and the whole of Africa, China, and India.

Direct regular flights to Cairo will land in Prague for the first time since 2011 when Czech Airlines ceased its operation of the route.

To service the connection, the carrier will deploy Boeing 737-800 aircraft with capacity for 154 passengers divided into 16 Business Class seats and 138 Economy Class seats.

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.

The new operation to Prague is part of the expansion plan adopted by EGYPTAIR, Amr Adawy, VP commercial of EGYPTAIR said and added.
