Air Arabia Egypt Cheap Flights & Promo Fares

A joint venture between Egyptian travel and tourism company, Travco Group, and international airline Air Arabia has turned out a low-cost carrier for scheduled commercial travel. Air Arabia Egypt, which began operations in the middle of June 2010, founded its base of operations in Borg El Arab International Airport in Alexandria. Upon securing its license, it began flying passengers to different parts of Southwest Asia and some parts of Africa and Europe. The aircraft models used for the operations are in good shape, with Airbus A320-214 handling more than a hundred passengers in the economy class in 2013.

Daily operations were managed by Air Arabia, which includes the maintenance, engineering, catering, and other relevant services. Hotel magnate Travco, on the other hand, provides the airline access to its network of tour operators, marketing teams, and assistance with government relations. It is the board, however, who will decide on key business matters that will affect this relatively new airline. They have since decide to operate in three ports of entry – Alexandria, Cairo, and a Red Sea station – to handle special Egyptian travel needs. Air Arabia CEO Adel Ali announced this piece of news during the Arab Air Carriers Organization in late 2009.
