Rohit Ramachandran, Chief Executive Officer, of Jazeera Airways, said: “We are delighted to fly to our seventh destination in Egypt, with Jazeera Airways being the first GCC carrier to operate directly to Sphinx International Airport. With four flights a week to this great leisure destination, we also offer a convenient and affordable travel option for tourists as well as locals. I would like to especially take this opportunity to thank the Egyptian Civil Aviation authorities for their tireless efforts to open up greater connectivity to this beautiful country. ”
The two terminals at the airport handle up to 900 passengers an hour with an annual capacity of 1.2 million passengers per year. This facilitates a faster journey for arriving and departing passengers through the airport. The airport also helps reduce congestion at Cairo Airport as well as traffic in the capital.
