News, EgyptAir: EgyptAir announces international travel promotion.

EgyptAir announced on Thursday its launch of a promotional campaign called “We won’t stop traveling”, which offers customers a discount of up to 20 percent on international airfare. 
The promotion aims to provide customers with flexible travel options and encourage them to enjoy flying again under the airline’s COVID-19 precautionary measures.
Customers have the option to pay a deposit on a flight voucher that will
secure them a discount to use on a future international flight. 
There are three discount tiers:
– Customers paying a deposit of LE300 will receive a 10 percent discount. 
– Customers paying a deposit of LE500 will receive a 15 percent discount.
– Customers paying a deposit of LE700 will receive a 20 percent discount. 
Vouchers will be available from September 20 to October 20, and can be bought in-person at Egyptair offices or by calling the airline. They are valid for one year after their purchase date. 
EgyptAir currently operates direct flights to more than 35 international destinations, and plans to increase the number of available destinations as more countries reopen for international travel.

News: EgyptAir Removed From Laptop Ban

Two and counting down: EgyptAir announced Wednesday that it had been removed from the March laptop ban for carry-on bags to the U.S.

The announcement left two airlines – Royal Air Maroc and Saudi Arabian Airlines – as the only remaining among nine airlines targeted by the Department of Homeland Security for the prohibition against electronics larger than cellphones. 

Those two have each said they expect to get off the list by July 19.

Kuwait Airways and Royal Jordanian Airlines were removed Sunday. Etihad, Emirates, Turkish and Qatar airlines were removed last week.

The department adopted the ban because of intelligence about terrorists getting better at hiding explosives in electronics. 

But the department said airlines could be removed from the prohibition against electronics larger than cellphones if they met tougher security measures announced June 28.

The standards are aimed at both detecting explosives hidden in electronics and thwarting airport workers from smuggling bombs aboard planes. 

The measures apply to 180 airlines flying to the U.S. from 280 airports in 105 countries.

If airlines don’t meet the standards, they could ultimately face a laptop ban for carry-on and checked bags on flights to the U.S.
