Sphinx airport soft launch is tomorrow

Sphinx airport soft launch tomorrow: Sphinx International Airport in Giza will begin trial runs and a soft launch on Monday, Civil Aviation Minister Younis El Masry said in a presser on Thursday, according to Al Shorouk. The airport will be operating at full capacity by 2020, El Masry noted, according to the newspaper.

El Masry denies UK’s Malicorp plans to bring another int’l arbitration suit against Egypt: The minister also denied reports from earlier this month that UK construction firm Malicorp is planning to file another arbitration case against the Civil Aviation Ministry for USD 500 mn in compensation for terminating an 18-year-old contract to build, operate and manage an airport in Ras Sudr, Al Mal reports. The ministry had been stuck in legal wrangling involving foreign courts with the company since the contract was terminated back in 2001.
