AMC Airlines is a charter airline based in Cairo, Egypt. It operates charter flights from Egypt's tourist destinations to Europe, regular charters to the Middle East as well as domestic flights.

The airline also operates ad hoc VIP flights and military transport (for the United Nations).

Its main base is Cairo International Airport, with hubs at Hurghada International Airport, Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport and Luxor International Airport.

History[edit]

The airline was established and started operations in 1988, after the Egyptian government approved the foundation of Aircraft Maintenance in Cairo. At that time Elsayed Saber and his family launched AMC Airlines after obtaining a licence to operate worldwide passenger charter operations. It is wholly owned by Elsayed Saber and his family and has 498 employees.

The airline was initially named 'AMC Aviation' before becoming 'AMC Airlines' in 2004.
