Interim President Adly Mansour inaugurated luxury hotel Le Meridian Cairo Airport branch on Thursday.
The hotel, built with EGP 680 million investments, is part of the Civil Aviation Ministry's development plan.
Upon his arrival, Mansour attended a cutting-ribbon ceremony, after which, he inspected a number of projects around the airport that have been developed and set up by the ministry.
Civil Aviation Minister Abdel-Aziz Fadel reviewed the new projects being implemented in Cairo Airport and other Egyptian airports.
The first development phase of the project at Cairo Airport, which ran for ten years, has cost EGP 13 billion and covered the renovation of passenger terminal 1, establishment of terminal 4 and arrival terminal 1 and passenger building 3 to accommodate 11 million passengers yearly, Fadel said.
The phase also included constructing a 9-km road linking between the Ring Road and Cairo-Suez Road, a new air control tower and a multi-storey parking, he added.
