Egypt's Air Leisure secures state-backed charter contract

Air Leisure (AL, Cairo Int'l) has secured a three-month long charter contract from the Egyptian government to ferry tourists from Saudi Arabia to the Red Sea resort towns of Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh.

Egypt's Tourism Minister Mohamed Yehia Rashed said in a statement that he hopes to attract as many as 150,000 Saudi vacationers to the Egyptian Riviera which has struggled in the face of renewed terrorist attacks.
Flights will start before the Eid Al-Fitr holidays, he added.
Should the project prove successful, the minister said other countries such as Kuwait, Jordan, and Lebanon could be targeted in future.
Air Leisure currently operates three ex-EgyptAir (MS, Cairo Int'l) A340-200s and one MD-83 (on repair in N'Djamena) on regular flights from Alexandria Borg el Arab, Assiut, Luxor, and Sohag to Jeddah and from Hurghada to Beijing Capital and Shanghai Pudong in China.
