Posted: 2008-12-11 10:45:00

CHICAGO, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- United Airlines and EGYPTAIR have signed an agreement to offer codeshare flights, which would expand the international destinations and enhance the frequent flyer benefits offered to customers of both carriers.


Beginning in summer 2009, United will place its code on EGYPTAIR flights linking New York Kennedy and London Heathrow with Cairo.


"Our relationship with EGYPTAIR -- and the added convenience of nonstop service from the United States and United Kingdom to Egypt -- will offer customers more choice to this vibrant part of the world," said Glenn F. Tilton, United's chairman, president and chief executive officer. "We are pleased to deepen our relationship with this key Star Alliance partner for the benefit of United and EGYPTAIR customers."


EGYPTAIR will place its code on United flights linking New York Kennedy with Los Angeles and San Francisco, and on flights linking London Heathrow with Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington Dulles.


"We are excited to link United's expansive network with our trans-Atlantic service," says Captain Tawfik Assy, chairman and chief executive officer of EGYPTAIR Holding Company. "These additional options give our customers more ways to reach regions across the United States. With the inauguration of Terminal 3 at Cairo Airport early next year, Star Alliance carriers will execute the move under one roof concept in one of the most modern airports in the region."

They left out one paragraph.

"EGYPTAIR is also the airline at which a homicidal Islamic fundamentalist co-pilot flew a 767 full of innocent people into the Atlantic Ocean intentionally. These are the high standards of membership maintained by all of our Star Alliance partners".

Be glad that UAL is not flying to CAI, that city is a total pit. It is one of the few countries that make Mexico seem like a well thought out and ordered society.
