Egyptian airline Nile Air announced the launch of a new route connecting Cairo with the Saudi Arabian city of Ha’il from June 15, 2017.
The new route complements Nile Air’s existing and extensive network to Saudi Arabia, with services to eleven destinations in the Kingdom and offers its passengers a convenient access point to north-western Saudi Arabia.
With the addition of this service, Nile Air will offer a total of 14 scheduled services between Egypt and Saudi Arabia, which solidifies its position as having the most extensive network of routes between both countries.
The new three times weekly route will operate every Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday, starting from June 2017 to coincide with the start of the Summer travel season.
Ahmed Aly, Nile Air’s Chief Executive Officer, said:
“As the largest private airline in Egypt, Nile Air is committed to providing our guests with greater convenience and options when traveling between Egypt and Saudi Arabia. The addition of Ha’il to our network reaffirms our continued commitment to serving the Egyptian community in the Kingdom but also supporting inbound tourism and business travel from Egypt.
“We anticipate our service will strongly contribute to the economy of Egypt and provide our guests with quality service & product they have come to expect from us.”
