EgyptAir Expands Its Operations In Nigeria Through A New Partnership

EgyptAir, the Egyptian national carrier, has expanded its operations in Nigeria with a new partnership and the opening of ticketing offices in Lagos and Ibadan.

 

The expansion is in response to an increase in the number of Nigerian travelers visiting the country and transiting through the carrier.

Muharram Abdel Rahman, EgyptAir Country Manager, stated at the launch of a partnership with Wakanow that the new offices aim to provide customers with easy access to services by leveraging the strength of partners.

“Through this partnership, EgyptAir will open City Ticketing Offices across Nigeria through the Wakanow Travel Centre network, allowing us to expand our operations further into the Northern and Southern parts of the country.”

“EgyptAir was founded in 1932 as Africa’s and the Middle East’s first airline, and the world’s seventh.” The airline also has a long history in Nigeria, having been the country’s second airline to arrive. “We are proud to be an African airline that has served Nigeria for over 56 years,” Rahman said.

Adebayo Adedeji, CEO of Wakanow, expressed his delight, saying the collaboration is a boon for service providers and a win-win situation for all.

“Our technological know-how and footprint will assist EgyptAir in serving its customers.” This is not a game changer for us; it is the game. For us, the game is innovation. We are not competing because competition is not necessary for innovation.

“Thinking about the customer and taking care of them drives innovation, and EgyptAir is willing to take care of the customer.” Through our partnership with EgyptAir and Karnak, Wakanow is the only travel agency in Nigeria that can provide visa on arrival to Cairo. “We’re doing this for the customer because we believe that if we take care of them, they’ll take care of us,” Adedeji explained.
