During an interview with CNBC Arabic on Monday, Helmy added that the bid will include all airports, including the Cairo International Airport.

The ministry aims to increase the number of passengers through the Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh airports to 10 million passengers this year, he announced.

The mechanisms for financing the construction of a new passenger terminal at Cairo Airport are also currently being studied.

Helmy explained that “The period from 2014 to 2023 witnessed a remarkable growth in increasing the capacity of Egyptian airports, as it reached 63.5 million passengers in 2023, and the Ministry of Civil Aviation continues its plan to increase the capacity of Egyptian airports to 72 million passengers.”
