CAIRO: In coordination with Palestinian Airlines, EgyptAir has opened an air bridge to Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International Airport to transport 5,000 Palestinians for Umrah this year.

This follows directives from the Ministry of Civil Aviation to ensure the transport of “Palestinian brothers to the holy land during the Hajj and Umrah seasons,” said Yehia Zakaria, board chairman of EgyptAir Holding Company.

For the season — from Nov. 15 to Feb. 20, 2023 — 14 special flights have been scheduled for the pilgrims.
