EgyptAir offers discounts up to 50% for business class

state-owned carrier EgyptAir said on Tuesday it is offering discounts up to 50 percent for business class seats on most of its international flights from the capital Cairo.

The discounts are effective as of Tuesday and will be in place for a limited period, EgyptAir said in a statement.

The discounted flights feature Super Diamond Full Flat Bed seats on the Boeing Dreamliner 787-9 aircraft and Full Flat Bed on both the Boeing 777-300ER and Airbus A330-300, the airline said.

On Monday, EgypAir said it had extended its codeshare agreement with Chicago-based United Airlines, allowing its customers in the US to book flights to the states of Boston, San Francesco, Los Angeles and Chicago through Washington D.C.

EgyptAir launched direct flights to Washington D.C. in June that operate three times a week.
