Egypt Air has received approval from the Japanese Government to increase its flights to Japan from April 2010 i.e. on set of the IATA Summer 2010 timetable. MS has been granted to fly daily to Tokyo Narita where it currently flies 3 times per week + 14 weekly flights combined to Osaka and Nagoya. The airline has also confirmed that from the on set of the IATA Winter 09-10 timetable, it will undertake the following changes:
SAH - frequencies increased from daily to 9 weekly flights using a B 738.
CAI / BOM / KUL - this route has been suspended
BOM - will now get a dedicated nonstop terminator flight flown 4 times per week using a B 738. It would be interesting to see if BOM-CAI which is a 6 hour 45 minute flight can be operated with a full payload using a B 738.
KUL - will receive 4 weekly nonstop terminator flights using an A 332.
