EGYPTAIR has placed an order for 10 Airbus A350-900s aircraft at Dubai Airshow.
The aircraft will help the airline reduce emissions with 25% less fuel burn and improve passenger comfort thanks to wide seats, high ceilings and ambient lighting.
“EGYPTAIR is a key partner of Airbus in the Middle East and Africa. We take immense pride in this partnership aimed at furthering the aviation industry. Our focus lies in the enhancement of our fleet to embrace some of the most contemporary aircraft available,” said EGYPTAIR chairman and CEO Yehia Zakaria.
“EGYPTAIR has firmed up an agreement with Airbus to procure 10 A350-900 aircraft, each boasting a capacity of 340 seats. These aircraft come equipped with cutting-edge technologies and Rolls-Royce XWB Trent engines, known for their modern design and reduced fuel emissions and consumption. As we tackle growing demand across our network, this aircraft is the optimal choice,” Zakaria added.
The A350-900 widebody aircraft will become EGYPTAIR’s flagship aircraft and will facilitate the airline’s expansion into Western USA and the Far East.
The A350 has won over 1,000 orders from leading carriers from around the globe.
