Cairo Airport Receives First Polish Flight in Nine Years

Polish flights are returning at a rate of five flights per week, which is expected to help make up for a decline in tourism from Eastern Europe due to the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The first Polish flight to Egypt in nine years landed safely in Cairo recently, signalling the end of a hiatus that lasted nearly a decade.


Poland was one of many European countries that put a pause on tourism due to security concerns in 2013. Now, they’re returning at a rate of five flights per week, which is expected to help make up for a decline in tourism from Eastern Europe due to the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine.


During a three-day visit, Polish President Andrey Duda met with Egyptian President Abel Fattah El-Sisi in Cairo, where they discussed the possibility of exporting crops from Poland. The Polish president is also supporting EU negotiations with Egypt to help Europe with its gas supply.
