EgyptAir penned its guiding price lists for Umrah tours this season, with the Islamic months of Rajab and Sha’ban including four segments depending on travel date and route.

The first segment is priced at EGP 5,570 to Jeddah, while the second comes at EGP 5,780 to Medina.

The list indicated that if travel and return dates come on Thursdays or Fridays, the prices to Jeddah increase to EGP 5,660 from Cairo and EGP 5,850 to Medina.

Moreover, for flights taking off from the Borg El-Arab airport in Alexandria, the prices are EGP 5,660 to Jeddah and EGP 5,780 to Medina.

As for tickets from Luxor, the prices to Jeddah come at EGP 4,950, while tickets from Aswan to Jeddah register EGP 5,050.

Umrah flights are set to begin on 29 March.

A senior source at EgyptAir said the decline in the foreign exchange rate will not impact the prices of tickets.

He explained that EgyptAir did not price its tickets according to the highest exchange rate, but rather the average rates.

He added that the company may consider cutting the prices if the exchange rates remain low on the official market.

EgyptAir had earlier posed a 25% discount from 20 to 23 February on Umrah tickets.

EgyptAir will rely on a fixed schedule of flights, with ten flights to Jeddah and five to Medina. The company will manoeuvre the models of the planes according to needs.

The source pointed out that the company has been receiving requests from tourism companies to book flights.
