AlMasria Universal Airlines (also known as AlMasria Airlines) is an Egyptian private airline based in Egypt. The airline operates scheduled services from Egypt to the Middle East. ‘AlMasria’ is derived from the Arabic word for ‘Egyptian’.
Plans for AlMasria Universal Airlines were announced in 2008 and the airline launched operations in June 2009. In an interview in April 2009 the appointed company President & CEO (and former dispatcher), Hassan Aziz, stated that the airline would launch operations in 2009 to take advantage of low prices during the global financial crisis to tap demand for air travel in the most populous Arab country. The company offers cargo services in the bellyhold of its passenger fleet. Maintenance is outsourced completely to EgyptAir under a total service agreement, with the airline also training AlMasria flight crew and the technical team. Ground-handling will be through EgyptAir, with passenger services undertaken by Egypt Aviation Services and catering by a new venture between EgyptAir and Lufthansa’s LSG Sky Chefs. En diciembre 2009 the airline became the first international airline to operate flights to Saudi Arabia’s Yanbu Airport. En junio 2010 the airline repeated the milestone at Qassim Regional Airport. Previously both Yanbu and Qassim airports were domestic airports. Both flights originate from Cairo International Airport. Other destinations earmarked by Aziz include Europe and Middle East with specific mention of Bahrain, Qatar and Jordan in addition to Copenhagen and Milan-Bergamo. AlMasria is also looking to lever the current bilateral talks taking place between Cairo and Baghdad.
En junio 2012 the AlMasria Universal Airlines started to operate regular flights between Cairo and Milan-Bergamo (BGY).
