Air Arabia Egypt (Arabic: العربية للطيران مصر‎) is a low-cost carrier based in Egypt.[1] The airline is a subsidiary of Air Arabia. The head office is in Heliopolis Cairo, Egypt.[2]

The airline secured it operating license from the Egyptian authorities on the 22 May 2010 and began commercial operations on 1 June 2010. The airline is based at Alexandria's Borg El Arab Airport.

History[edit]

Air Arabia Egypt is an Alexandria-based Air Arabia Group company. The airline offers low-cost travel solutions to a number of destinations across the region. The company focuses on booking online through www.airarabia.com, which provides a quick and easy navigation and booking process. Air Arabia Egypt also provides booking facilities through call centers, travel agents, appointed GSA’s and sales shops.

Operations[edit]

During the Arab Air Carriers Organization conference in October 2009, Air Arabia CEO Adel Ali indicated that the new airline would operate from Alexandria and a Red Sea station (either Sharm el-Sheikh or Hurghada) as well as Cairo. "Egypt has different needs," he says, in contrast to the single bases established by Air Arabia in Sharjah and Morocco.
