From its base in Cairo, Egyptair flies to over 75 global destinations. The flag carrying airline of Egypt offers flights to the Middle East, Europe, Asia, Africa, and both North and South America. It also offers an extensive network of domestic routes, making it the perfect airline for those who want to explore Egypt by air. Their frequent flyer programme is Egyptair Plus, they’re a member of Star Alliance, and the handsome creature on their logo is Horus: the winged god of the sun.
How to Check In
You can check in the old fashioned way at the airport desk, or make the most of Egyptair’s online check-in options. You can either check in via the web, printing your boarding card and bringing it with you, or by mobile phone via Egyptair’s mobile site m.egyptair.com. If you choose this option, you can have your e-boarding card sent to your phone via email or SMS.
Baggage Allowance and Fees
On international flights, Economy passengers can bring two pieces of luggage weighing up to 23kg while Business and First class passengers have a higher weigh allowance of 32kg per piece. Star Gold and Egyptair Plus members are able to bring extra luggage. Excess baggage charges vary based on route.
Seating – Leg Room, Choosing Seats
You can choose your seat at check-in. Legroom in economy is quite tight, with a seat pitch of around 18”. Business class travellers can stretch out with an average seat pitch of 50”.
Government fees and taxes are clearly displayed by Egyptair before you confirm your ticket choice. These fees are based on your destination, and may be subject to change.
Meals, Snacks, Drinks
All of the food and drink served on board Egyptair flights is halal, and complies with Islamic dietary law. If you enjoy a tipple at 30 thousand feet you’re out of luck, as this means no alcohol is served.
Egyptair has fair punctuality, with around 60% of their flights arriving and depart on time.
