CAIRO – 30 October 2017: The first regular flight of Air Cairo was prepared to depart from Milano Malpensa Airport in Italy on Sunday to go to Sharm El-Sheikh International Airport.

Commercial director of Air Cairo Essam Azab said the plane will arrive at Sharm El-Sheikh Airport in the middle of the night with more than 120 tourists on board, pointing out that there is a demand of Italians to visit the city, where the occupancy rate currently exceeds 70%.

The company will start its regular weekly flights from Milano to Marsa Alam from December 3 for the first time after a two-year hiatus, he added.

Azab stated that the current season will witness an increase in the number of Italian tourists, mentioning that Marsa Alam is the preferred destination for the Italian tourist followed by Sharm El-Sheikh.

He revealed that the company's plan in the summer of 2018 depends on the expansion of the market and flights from central Italy. He expected that there will be more than four flights per week.
