EgyptAir's regional director for Greece and Cyprus recently stated that the airline will add two new flights from Athens to China. The two flights will connect Athens to Hong Kong and Shanghai via Cairo.
The addition of the two new routes comes as part of EgyptAir's 5-year plan to boost its presence in Greece and the wider region. After their success with the Santorini route added in 2017, the airline will plan to add more flights to the Greek islands.
In 2017, EgyptAir carried over 112,000 daily passengers from Athens to Cairo and Alexandria. In addition to adding new routes, EgyptAir also pans to add new aircraft to its fleet.
