The new Marsa Alam International Airport has opened in southern Egypt. The facility was built and is being operated by Kuwait’s M.A. Kharafi Group as a gateway to new upscale tourist resorts on Egypt’s Red Sea coast. The airport (ICAO code HEMA) offers a 9,800-ft runway with DVOR-DME. It can be kept open around the clock with 48 hr notice. Marsa Alam, designed by Netherlands Airport Consultants, is currently receiving a limited number of charter airline flights from Europe but has no dedicated facilities for business aircraft. Handling for all aircraft is provided by Aeroports de Paris, which operates and manages the airport on behalf of the Kharafi Group.
