Egyptair CEO welcomes head of Star Alliance to Egypt
Captain Hossam Kamal, Egyptair Holding CEO and chairman recently met with Mark Schwab, Star Alliance CEO, during his brief visit to Egypt.
Both CEOs discussed important issues and international challenges affecting the alliance and its member carriers. In addition they discussed the ability to add more important points to the Star Alliance network, which now reaches 1293 airports in 190 countries around the globe.
“Egyptair always opts to modernise the services provided to customers through abiding by the international standards of service quality that enhance and support the airline’s positioning among alliance members,” commented Kamal. “We are proud to be part of the first alliance in the world which was voted as Best Airline Alliance in 2011 at the Business Traveller Awards”.
Following the meeting, both parties agreed to hold periodical meetings in order discuss the cooperation and support mechanisms, as well as to enhance the development strategy of both Egyptair and Star Alliance in Africa and the Middle East, in coordination with further member carriers based in the region.
Following his familiarisation tour of Cairo Terminal 3, Mark Schwab commented: “Egyptair has consistently played a pioneering role in aviation in Africa and the Middle East. Cairo Terminal 3 is a further example of this. By ensuring that Star Alliance has a dedicated terminal in Cairo, where transfer distances between all flights are short and under one roof, Egyptair is playing an important part in maximising alliance advantages for the passengers, which in turn also benefits the airline itself and the country as a whole.”
