CAIRO: Minister of Civil Aviation Hossam Kamal inaugurated the first phase of the Egyptian Aviation Museum Thursday marking the 83rd anniversary for EgyptAir,
airport sources told the Cairo Post Friday.
“The museum is located inside EgyptAir In-Flight Services building [at Cairo airport] and since it is a customs area, public entrance is not allowed,” the source said.
“The museum houses the equipments used on planes operated during Egypt’s modern royalty period, so you can find a plate with King Farouk’s photo printed on it along with other plates printed with the United Arab Republic from the period when Egypt was united with Syria from 1958 to 1961,” the source added.
She added that there are numbers of souvenirs, silver equipments, and ancient photos for the planes and the company dating back to the King Farouk’s era alongside models for the very first planes that EgyptAir had.
