The Chairman of the Board of Directors of the EgyptAir Holding Company, Yehia Zakariya, confirmed the operation of new direct flights from Cairo to Misrata in Libya, starting January 25.

Zakariya said on the company’d Facebook page that the new route is scheduled with one flight per week every Thursday, thus becoming EgyptAir’s third city destination in Libya after Benghazi and Tripoli.

He added that as encouragement from EgyptAir for the new route the company offered a discount on the first four flights of this route, with the first flight at a 50% discount and the other three flights at a 25% discount if tickets are purchased until January 20.

EgyptAir indicated that after adding Misrata to the EgyptAir routes, the company will operate 15 flights a week to Libya, with 7 flights to Benghazi, 7 flights to Mitigia, and one to Misrata.

Zakariya explained that the addition of the new flights came due to the increase in traffic between Libya and Egypt, especially with the presence of Egyptians residing and working in Libyan territories, and with the aim of enhancing trade and economic exchange between Egypt and Libya.
