From 1 June, Singapore Airlines’ customers will
be able to enjoy daily flights between Singapore and Cairo as a
result of an expanded codeshare agreement with EgyptAir.
Singapore Airlines flies four times weekly from
Singapore to Cairo, via Dubai. Now, customers also have the option
of travelling on any of Singapore Airlines’ daily flights to Dubai
and connecting on EgyptAir’s services from Dubai to Cairo, on the
three days when the Airline does not operate flights to Cairo.
Travellers may similarly make use of the connections on the return
Combined with the Airline’s four times weekly services, the
expansion of the existing codeshare arrangements with EgyptAir, a
Star Alliance partner, allows Singapore Airlines to offer daily
flights to Cairo.
In addition, travellers from Singapore will
be able to connect on EgyptAir’s network to destinations such as
Luxor and Sharm el-Sheikh, via Cairo.
The agreement also enables EgyptAir’s customers to make use of codeshare flights on Singapore
Airlines from Singapore onwards to Bangkok, Sydney and Melbourne. This is over and above existing codeshare flights on Singapore
Airlines between Singapore and Cairo.
Mr Huang Cheng Eng, Singapore Airlines
Executive Vice President Marketing & the Regions, said, “The expanded agreement
attests to the long-standing and growing partnership between
Singapore Airlines and EgyptAir. It also demonstrates the
airlines’ commitment to providing customers with greater
flexibility for their travels between Singapore and Cairo, and
maximising the opportunities offered by our combined network.”
All Singapore Airlines flights to Cairo depart
from Terminal 2 at Changi Airport.
