Change… Egypt Air Removes Israel From Map – Even Though They Fly There
How’s this for change?
Egypt Air recently removed Israel from their website map… Even though the airlines makes stops in Israel several times a week.
YNet News reported:
Egypt Air, the largest airline in Egypt, has removed Israel from the map – literally. On its website, Ynet has learned, Jordan’s land reaches the Mediterranean Sea.
The airline’s subsidiary, Air Sinai, flies to Israel regularly, but customers seeking flights to Ben Gurion National Airport will have a hard time finding them. On the map are the names of the Mideast capitals – Amman, Beirut, and Damascus – but Israel is nowhere to be found.
Egypt Air is the first large airline to have omitted the state from its map of destinations. Other airlines based in Muslim countries, such as Turkish Airlines and Royal Jordanian, include Israel and Tel Aviv on its maps.
The omission is especially odd seeing as the company continues to fly to Israel four times a week.
Tel Aviv flights were temporarily halted following the recent uprising that overturned the government, but were then reinstated.
