Egyptair is the largest Airline is Africa, second only to the South African Airways. Unparalled in its History, the origin of this longest surviving Airline in Africa can be traced back to the 1930s. For this reason alone, the flag carrier of Egypt has enjoyed the leading position despite a few setbacks over the years.
The Airline also runs two subsidiary Airlines which are the Air Sinai and the Egyptair Express. It is a state run airline but does not enjoy any special privileges from the government. It primarily operates from the Cairo International Airport in Egypt, which is the second busiest airport in Africa and handles over 65 airlines. The fleet of Egyptair has over 80 Aircrafts flying to 80 destinations in about 60 countries and leads the airline business in Africa, Middle east and Europe.
