Nile Air's chief executive officer Ahmed Aly said the Egyptian airline is looking to go public on the Egyptian Stock Exchange at some point in 2017, reports ch-aviation.

In an interview with Mubasher TV, Aly said preliminary studies for the offering would be completed in October. The carrier is currently working with several unspecified underwriters to finalize a possible date, he added.
