The new services will play an important role in developing tourism to Upper Egypt by offering Egyptians living in Cairo and international visitors, quick and conveniently scheduled flights to the historical cities.

Nile Air chief executive officer, Ahmed Aly, said: “As we continue to grow apace in Egypt, we have seen a clear need to increase our existence in the domestic market. We are delighted to introduce our two newest destinations of Luxor & Aswan in support of the revitalization of the Egyptian tourism market to the ancient & spectacular treasures of Upper Egypt.

Services between Cairo and Luxor will be operated three times a week (Monday, Thursday & Friday), whilst Cairo and Aswan will be connected twice per week (Monday and Friday).
