EgyptAir Plans Expansion of Cairo-Delhi Service to Daily Flights

In light of the growing Egyptian-Indian relations at all levels, Egypt’s national carrier, EgyptAir, plans expansion of its Cairo-New Delhi service to daily flights from current four flights a week. This enhancement follows the successful launch of the route last August, which initially operated with four flights per week.

This milestone comes on the heels of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Egypt last year, which further strengthened the ties between the two nations. Shortly after his visit, EgyptAir inaugurated its first direct flight from Cairo to New Delhi, marking a significant step in bolstering travel and cultural exchange.


“Since the launch of the direct flight last year, we have witnessed a notable increase in travel, business, and cultural exchanges between Egypt and India. This move to daily flights is set to further augment these ties,” said Amr Aly, Country Manager, EgyptAir.

The Cairo-Delhi route is operated by the state-of-the-art Airbus A320neo aircraft. EgyptAir’s fleet includes eight A320neos, with an average age of just 1.8 years, ensuring a modern and efficient travel experience. Additionally, the airline’s fleet boasts six Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners, with two more expected in the coming years.


The new A320neo aircraft are expected to reduce fuel consumption by approximately 20 percent compared to previous generation aircraft, while EgyptAir’s current fleet reduces emissions by 60 percent. This commitment to sustainability reflects EgyptAir’s dedication to environmentally responsible operations.

This expansion aligns with the African nation’s Ministry of Civil Aviation’s directives to enhance Egypt’s connectivity with the world through Cairo’s hub. EgyptAir, Africa’s oldest carrier, recently celebrated its 92nd anniversary, marking nearly a century of exceptional air travel services.

“To express our appreciation to our trade partners and esteemed customers, EgyptAir will introduce exciting initiatives and promotions, including special fares and enhanced onboard services. We are committed to ensuring an unforgettable travel experience for our passengers as we embark on the next phase of our remarkable journey,” Aly added.
