Air Cairo is a low fare airline based in Cairo, Egypt. The airline is the low fare subsidiary of EgyptAir which operates scheduled flights to the middle east, and inclusive tour flights to Egypt from Europe, Africa and Asia.
The airline was established by Dr Ibrahim Kamel's Kato Group, in conjunction with a consortium of Egyptian travel agents. It started operations in 1997. In 2003 EgyptAir acquired 40% (later increased to 60%) of the airline and the existing Tupolev fleet and operations were transferred to a new company, Cairo Aviation. Air Cairo was then re-positioned as a new charter airline and EgyptAir subsidiary operating domestic and international charter services.
