Egypt Air says it has entered into a partnership agreement with Wakanow that would help promote tourism travel between Nigeria and Egypt.
According to EgyptAir, the partnership will see the airline open City Ticketing Offices through the Wakanow Travel Center network across Nigeria enabling the airline to expand operations further into the Northern and Southern parts of Nigeria. Part of the partnership is the launch of new offices to give their customers easy access to their services leveraging the strength of their partners.
Mr. Adebayo Adedeji, Chief Executive Officer of Wakanow, says: “As Egypt Air is ready to serve its customers, we are providing the services with our technology know-how and our footprint to help EgyptAir service its customers.”
“Visa is the gateway of travel, especially for people with green passports and providing this service. You can buy your ticket and proceed to get your visa here and you can go across and get your hotel in one building,” Adedeji adds.
“We have 26 outlets across the nation. The strength of Wakanow is our ground footprint and ability to leverage our ground footprint for the customers,” he added. EgyptAir Country Manager, Mr. Muharram Abdel Rahman, states that Egypt Air was planning to increase its frequencies from ten weekly flights, stressing that the carrier currently operates to Kano, Abuja, and Lagos, while Port-Harcourt is in their plan as well.
“Now, we are flying from two points from Kano and Abuja. We have three flights from Kano and four from Abuja and we have a daily flight from Lagos. We are planning to increase our frequency from Lagos to 10 frequencies and Abuja to daily and four flights from Kano and looking at Port-Harcourt in the future,” Mr. Rahman says.
