EgyptAir to Operate Weekly Flights to São Paulo in December
Cairo and São Paulo will have weekly nonstop flights starting in December by Egypt’s flag carrier airline EgyptAir, which began operations at Guarulhos Airport this Sunday
Until December, flights will be biweekly, departing from Cairo on Saturday evenings and from São Paulo at 4:00 a.m. on Mondays. The flights are chartered and operated by the company Egypt Flights (a subsidiary of Master Flights), which this Sunday presented the details of the operation in Guarulhos.
According to the commercial director of Master Flights, Marlene de Sousa, regular scheduled flights announced in recent months have already increased demand from passengers and companies for the nonstop flights between the two cities. “I have no doubt it will impact the trade relationship between the countries. This is already happening because companies with employees in the technology sector working with Egyptian clients have already contacted us and shown interest in this flight. I think culture and leisure tourism will continue to be the main pattern of the route; still, business tourism also gains opportunities,” said Sousa. She stated that, until today, the shortest routes between São Paulo and Cairo could not be made in less than 19 hours with connections. Now, the trip takes 12:30 hours nonstop.
