Qatar Airways quits Alexandria's El-Nozha airport
Qatar Airways will move all its Alexandria flights from El-Nozha to Borg El Arab Airport, effective March 27.
The move to Borg El Arab, which is around 50km away from the city centre, is necessitated by the shutdown of El-Nozha for refurbishment.
All scheduled timings for Qatar Airways’ Alexandria flights will remain the same.
The refurbishment of El-Nozha is expected to take around two years and cost around US $120 million.
The runway, which can currently only handle the A320 and B737, will be lengthened and a new passenger terminal will be built to replace the existing one.
