South Korea resumes charter flights to Egypt after several years of suspension
South Korean airlines operated last Friday two charter flights to Cairo International Airport following several years of suspension.
The first flight, operated by Asiana Airlines, came from Seoul with 295 passengers onboard, while the second flight was operated by Korean Air, Egypt Today reported.
In November, South Korea’s Ambassador to Egypt Hong Jin Wook affirmed plans by Korean Air and Asiana Airlines to operate charter flights during January and February 2023, the Egyptian media reports.
The Asian country in August eased travel advisory to Egypt, for the first time in 8 years. The move is expected to pave the way for a potential increase in the number of Korean tourists to Egypt.
