EgyptAir (Arabic: مصر للطيران, ) is the flag carrier airline of Egypt and a member of Star Alliance. The airline is based at Cairo International Airport, its main hub, operating scheduled passenger and freight services to more than 75 destinations in the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. An extensive network of domestic services is focused on Cairo, Egypt's capital.

Egypt Air is Africa's largest airline, joining Star Alliance on 11 July 2008. The company is headquartered in the EgyptAir Administrative Complex on the grounds of Cairo International Airport in Cairo. The airline's logo is Horus, the sky deity in ancient Egyptian mythology, usually depicted as a falcon or a man with the head of a falcon. The airline has taken Horus as its logo because of its ancient symbolism as a "winged god of the sun".
