This year, EgyptAir transported over 10,000 Guinean pilgrims from Conakry on 33 direct special flights in the outbound phase and an equal number in the return phase between Saudi Arabia and Guinea, marking a return after an absence of more than 12 years.

Additionally, EgyptAir transported approximately 5,000 Malian pilgrims on 19 flights in the outbound and return phases between Bamako Airport in Mali and Saudi Arabia.
