Do any charter companies flying to Siwa?

Hi,
Just learned there is a tiny commercial airport at Siwa for exporting local crafts. Does anyone know of a charter company that flies from Luxor, Cairo or Alexandria to/from Siwa? (not a pricey Lear Jet or anything, small prop plane maybe?) We'd love to visit Siwa but don't have the time on our trip for the 8 hr drive... Thanks

as you probably already know, Siwa is located in desert oases.
Could Siwa justify a charter? How many people or trafic or turistic attractions (Siwa is not Luxor) would go there?
Sure, you might be able to hire a whole charter but this would cost much more the LearJet. Ask to Petroleum Air Services which is an airline based in Cairo, I've been twice with them, not bad at all (btw they have *prop plane*), the do some commercial passenger services within Egypt.
Last alternative is *travel by night* on 8 hr drive (the cheapest option).

I agree with traveling by night. I took the night bus from Alexandria (and thankfully was able to sleep!) and was in Siwa by 6am. If you can do it, go for it. Siwa is totally worth it!
