The inaugural edition of Egypt International Airshow (EIAS 2024) is set to take place on 2-5 September 2024 at the new El Alamein International Airport, in one of Egypt’s most prominent new tourist cities.

The event aims to foster a global exchange of expertise among prominent players in the aviation industry, across defence, space, and commercial aviation.

The show is fully supported by the Egyptian Armed Forces, Ministry of Civil Aviation, Egyptian Space Agency and the EgyptAir Holding Company.

These strategic alliances with these key partners are instrumental in the organisation of the event and bringing together the entire aerospace ecosystem for EIAS 2024.

Air Marshal Mahmoud Fouad Abdel-Gawad, Commander, Egyptian Air Force, said in his welcome message to EIAS: “This global event is an ideal platform for exchanging experiences and bringing together visions and ideas for discussion.”

“Given Egypt’s regional and international strategic position and status, and our keenness to enhance aspects of cooperation and open new horizons for communication and exchange of experiences with partners and friends; and out of our awareness of the necessity of keeping pace with the rapid development and modernization in this vital and important field,” he added.

“Over the course of Egypt International Airshow, you will have the opportunity for ample networking opportunities and experience firsthand the latest developments in the civil aviation sector,” he concluded.

For his part, H.E. Mohamed Abbas Helmi, Minister for Civil Aviation, Arab Republic of Egypt, declared: “It is my pleasure to extend a very warm welcome to the inaugural Egypt International Airshow 2024. As the Egyptian Minister for Civil Aviation, I am delighted to lend my support to this important event, that promises to bring together the finest minds and talents from across the region and the wider international aerospace community.”

“Egypt has engraved its name in the history of civil aviation with the remarkable landing of the first Egyptian pilot at Heliopolis Airport on the 26th of January 1930, marking the Egyptian Civil Aviation anniversary since then. This event was followed by the establishment of the national carrier of Egypt on the 7th of May 1932, becoming the first airline in the Middle East and Africa and the 7th in the world to join IATA, and today the longest running carrier in the African continent with one of the most extensive and diversified fleets,” he noted.

Professor Dr. Sherif Sedky, Chief Executive Officer, Egyptian Space Agency, said: “Egypt International Airshow presents an unparalleled platform for fostering ties with Egypt's evolving space sector and provides a gateway to deeper engagements across Africa and the Middle East.”

“It is my distinct honour to extend a warm welcome to each one of you attending the Egypt International Air Show 2024. This event symbolizes a pivotal stride in Egypt’s ambitious march towards a more profound engagement with space and its infinite possibilities,” he added.

“Our devotion to the peaceful application of space is unwavering. Through intensive investment in human capital, strategic development of our space industry, and bolstered research to drive cutting-edge innovation, we are meticulously laying down the foundations of a space infrastructure that is poised to serve Egypt’s national aspirations, cater to the unique demands of the African continent, and make a consequential mark on the global stage,” Dr. Sedky concluded.
