EgyptAir Expands Its Wings to Shanghai with Boeing 777 Flights

EgyptAir, the flag carrier of Egypt, has announced the addition of Shanghai to its passenger network, marking a significant expansion in its operations. The new route, which is set to commence on November 16th, 2023, will connect Cairo International Airport (CAI) and Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVD).


A New Chapter in EgyptAir's Expansion

The decision to launch the Cairo-Shanghai route comes as part of EgyptAir's ongoing expansion strategy. The airline has recently launched several new routes, including Delhi, Dhaka, Manchester, Newark, Port Sudan, and charter flights to São Paulo. The addition of Shanghai marks the airline's fourth destination in China, joining Beijing, Guangzhou, and Hangzhou.

Flight Details

The new service will operate three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The outbound flights will depart Cairo for Shanghai at 02:00 local time and arrive at Pudong airport at 18:55 local time. The return flights will leave Pudong at 01:05 on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, landing back in Cairo at 07:35 local time.

Aircraft Details

The 5,210-mile (8,384 km) route will be serviced by the Boeing 777-300ER, EgyptAir's second most-used long-haul type by winter flights after the 787-9. The aircraft offers a seating capacity of 346 seats and is also brilliant for freight.


Looking Ahead

While the new route's schedule may not be ideal for two-way connectivity over its Cairo hub, it represents a significant step forward in EgyptAir's expansion strategy. As the airline continues to grow and adapt to the rapidly changing aviation landscape, it remains committed to providing its passengers with more travel options and enhanced connectivity. In conclusion, the launch of the Cairo-Shanghai route is a testament to EgyptAir's commitment to expanding its global footprint. As it continues to forge new paths in the aviation industry, passengers can look forward to more exciting destinations in the future.
