Air India, Egypt Air in talks for code sharing and parking base

National Aviation Company of India is in talks with Egypt Air for a tie-up that may include sharing of code and parking base. “We are in the process of tying up with Air India. It will be finalised once Air India gets the membership status in Star Alliance,” said a senior Egypt Air official.

Ahmed Wasfy, regional manager of Egypt Air in India told ET, “The company is analysing code sharing agreement with an Indian carrier but I can’t divulge the name at this point of time.” Nacil is expected to get a ‘membership’ within a few months, Egypt Air is a member already. The code sharing agreement will help both the airlines to attract more passengers with minimum investment on infrastructure, said an analyst working with a domestic brokerage. “India is a huge market and many passengers from Egypt visit India. India will have more travellers in the coming years,” said Mr Wasfy.

Egypt Air runs four direct flights a week between Mumbai and Cairo. It plans to launch Delhi-Cairo daily flights next fiscal. There is no other flight between India to Cairo.
