EgyptAir to Debut Nonstop Cairo-Mogadishu Flights This July

Somalia’s envoy to Egypt and permanent player at the Arab League, Ali Abdi Awaare, jubilantly acknowledged the announcement, underscoring the perks for folks in both nations by simplifying travel and boosting relations.

Besides flying to Mogadishu, EgyptAir sets its sights on Abidjan, Ivory Coast, and Djibouti. Abidjan-bound flights take off on July 9, buzzing through the skies thrice a week. The Cairo-Djibouti-Mogadishu journey kicks off on July 11, rolling out biweekly with the trusty Boeing 737-800.

Ahmed Moalim Hassan, the Somali Civil Aviation Authority’s (SCAA) bigwig, recently rolled out the red carpet for a squad from the Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority and EgyptAir in Mogadishu. Their visit nailed down prep for the fresh route, ensuring Aden Abdulle International Airport’s primed for the incoming jaunts.

These additional routes bolster EgyptAir’s African footprint to 26 hot spots. The airline aims to pump this up to 32 by 2028, eyeing destinations like Dakar in Senegal, Luanda in Angola, Cape Town in South Africa, Bamako in Mali, Harare in Zimbabwe, and Lusaka in Zambia.
