EGYPTAIR sent a special Egypt national football team livery to Moscow Domodedovo on 12 April, the day which ended a 28-month hiatus for the carrier on its route from Cairo. The Russian airport greeted the carrier’s return with a water arch salute. Along with EGYPTAIR, Aeroflot also resumed flights between the two capitals this week.
- EGYPTAIR commenced flights between Cairo (CAI) and Moscow Domodedovo (DME) on 12 April, ending the carrier’s 28-month hiatus of serving the 2,857-kilometre Egypt–Russia capital connection. Like it did last time round, the carrier will offer a three times weekly service between the two airports, operating the route using a mixture of its 737-800s and short-haul Airbus fleet. Currently no other carrier operates between the two airports, however Aeroflot has also resumed flights between Moscow and Cairo this week, operating three weekly flights between Moscow Sheremetyevo and the Egyptian capital airport.
