EgyptAir Cargo is the cargo division of the Egyptian national airline EgyptAir. It operates using both its own dedicated aircraft and the cargo-carrying capacity of its sister passenger airline. Its main base is Cairo International Airport.

History[edit]

EgyptAir Cargo was formed in 2002 from the existing cargo activities of EgyptAir, on the creation of The EgyptAir Holding Company, as one of its subsidiaries.[1] The company is a member of IATA's Cargo 2000 initiative.

In 2008 the airline introduced a modified logo with larger EgyptAir Cargo titles, however sister company EgyptAir introduced a new livery and logo later that year that will be applied to the cargo fleet in due course.[when?]
