AlMasria Universal Airlines

AlMasria Universal Airlines is an Egyptian private airline based in Egypt. The airline operates scheduled services from Egypt to the Middle East. 'AlMasria' is derived from the Arabic word for 'Egyptian'.

This airline is operating flights to Luxor from Cairo and back on select days, don't think you can book on line but through a travel agency.

Their prices are usually very good I paid 260le to Cairo from Hurghada.

They do seem to have good prices, but if you are using it to save money connecting to an international flight, it might not be the best deal. That's because the cheapest international flights always leave on Wednesdays, so they are unlikely to meet up well with the alMasria schedule, which flies a roundtrip route CAI-LXR-CAI on Thursday night. But thanks for sharing as it IS a good domestic option.

The link in Bombay's post took me to a pdf document showing the winter schedule from 28 October 2014 to 31 March 2015, so not relevant today

I went to the company's website and tried the booking form and Luxor doesn't appear to be included on there at all :(

As I said you need to book through an agent not the website. The flights are on Mondays and Thursdays as per the PDF whatever the date states.
