Air Cairo Optimises Reintroduction of ATR Aircraft in Egypt


Egyptian carrier, Air Cairo, and regional aircraft manufacturer ATR, have signed a Global Maintenance Agreement (GMA). 


With the five-year pay-by-the-hour contract, Air Cairo will benefit from the repair, overhaul and pooling services of Line Replaceable Units for its fleet of six ATR 72-600s currently being delivered.


The agreement also includes an on-site stock of spare parts, along with blades availability and maintenance services.


Operating more than 200 weekly flights to 35 international and domestic destinations, Air Cairo offers invaluable connectivity for both local communities and tourists, who can rely on a quick, modern and responsible access to all the beauties of Egypt and opportunities of a connected world.


Commenting on the announcement, Mr Hussein Sherif, Chief Executive Officer at Air Cairo, said: “Being profitable in a low-fare environment is a day-to-day challenge, the key of which is not only to have the right aircraft, but also to make the most of them.


As we are reintroducing the ATR platform in Egypt after 15 years, we want to ensure we can offer our passengers the most modern, comfortable and reliable experience. Our choice of the aircraft type will assist on the former two points, while the ATR GMA will support our effort to deliver the latter to our passengers.”


“For over 20 years, ATR has been reducing operators’ maintenance costs and increasing time in the air through maintenance and repair,” said David Brigante, Senior Vice-President Customer Support and Services at ATR.


“This contributes to making regional air transport even more reliable, accessible and sustainable. We will be offering Air Cairo our expertise to ensure it can make the most of its ATR fleet, as we well know that even the most efficient aircraft is only valuable when it is flying.”

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
