PA transportation minister arrives in Cairo for talks

Feb. 16, 2013 8:46 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 17, 2013 7:41 P.M.)
CAIRO (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Authority minister of transportation arrived in Cairo on Saturday to meet with Egyptian officials, a Palestinian embassy official in Cairo said.

Ali Abu Zuhri will meet with Egypt's minister of aviation on Sunday to discuss ways to support the Egypt-based Palestinian airlines, including the possibility of creating a partnership with the aviation ministry and increasing flight schedules.

Palestinian Authority Ambassador to Egypt Barakat al-Farra will attend the meeting.

Palestinian Airlines has a fleet of three aircraft. It operates out of El-Arish and offers charter services to Saudi Arabia during the annual Muslim pilgrimage season.

The fleet was based at Yasser Arafat International Airport in Gaza until an Israeli ban on Palestinian commercial flights grounded planes and airstrikes damaged the airport in 2001.
