EgyptAir (Arabic: ??? ???????, Mi?r li?-?ayar?n) is the flag carrier airline of Egypt. The airline is based at Cairo International Airport, its main hub, operating scheduled passenger and freight services to more than 75 destinations in the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. With an extensive network of domestic services focused on Cairo, Egypt’s capital, the airline is working to regain profitable operations following the revolution of 2011.

Egyptair is a member of Star Alliance, having joined on 11 July 2008. The airline’s logo is Horus, the sky deity in ancient Egyptian mythology, chosen because of its ancient symbolism as a “winged god of the sun”, and usually depicted as a falcon or a man with the head of a falcon.

Their frequent flyer program is called Egyptair Plus.
