Egyptian operator takes delivery of first aircraft
AlMasria Universal Airlines is celebrating after its first leased A320 jet was delivered to the company's headquarters in Egypt.
The second flag-carrier is planning to offer scheduled services to around 20 destinations in the Middle East, North Africa and Europe, and is expecting another three A320s in the next 12 months. The company plans to offer cargo services in the bellyhold of its passenger fleet.
“Our aim is to be one of the world’s leading value-based airlines” said Hassan Aziz, AlMasria's president and CEO.
“And that could only be accomplished through an innovative business approach offering superb value for money and a safe, reliable operation,” he added.
In January, the Cairo-based firm signed a total maintenance deal with EgyptAir Maintenance & Engineering to look after its A320 fleet.
