Regular customers will also receive free plus bonus miles till 8 May, according to EgyptAir employee Mohamed El-Alfy, who appeared in a company video to announce the offers.
Metwally said that “regular customers will receive up to 3,000 free plus bonus miles for platinum card holders, 2,000 for the golden card holders, 1,000 for silver card holders and 500 for classic card members”.
The company has also announced a Facebook competition where participants post photos of themselves at Egyptian historical landmarks. The top five winners will receive free tickets.
“The first winner will be given two international business class tickets to anywhere in the world, the second winner will be given two international tickets in economy class,” Metwally said.
“The third-placed winner will receive a free economy ticket and a 50% discount on a second ticket,” she continued.
The competition also promises two domestic flight tickets to whoever takes fourth place, and one for whoever comes in fifth.
