EGYPTAIR has taken delivery of its first of 12 A220-300 aircraft on order.
With taking delivery, Epytair becomes the first A220 operator based in the Middle East and North African region, and the sixth operator worldwide.
The Cairo-based airline intends to fly the aircraft on routes to and from its main Egyptian Hub in Cairo in the coming days.
EGYPTAIR’s brand-new A220-300 is configured in a two-class cabin with 140-seats including 15 premium economy and 125 economy class seats, offering every passenger a greater level of comfort and space.
With an order book of over 500 aircraft at the end of August 2019, the A220 has all the credentials to win the lion’s share of the 100- to 150-seat aircraft market estimated to represent at least 7,000 aircraft over the next 20 years.
