Szijjarto: Wizz Air to launch new flight to Cairo in October

Wizz Air is launching a new flight three times a week to Cairo from Oct. 30 in the wake of "lengthy negotiations" and diplomatic efforts, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Sunday.

Hitherto, Cairo International Airport had “basically excluded” low-cost airlines, he said in a Facebook post.

Hungary’s government has kept the issue on the agenda at every meeting since 2022, until the Egyptian tourism ministry issued the necessary paperwork, he said. “A new destination has become available, and a new economic link has been created between two countries,” he said.
