EgyptAir unveils order for 10 A350-900s to cover growing air travel demand

EgyptAir disclosed on Tuesday an order for new Airbus A350-900s at the Dubai Airshow.

The A350-900s will offer EgyptAir with 25 percent less fuel burn and, in turn, reduced emissions. Also, the Airbus AirSpace cabin’s design offers the passengers ultimate comfort, with wide seats, high ceilings, and enticing ambient lighting.

The deal took place at the 2023 Dubai Airshow, in the presence of EgyptAir’s Chairman and CEO, Yehia Zakaria and Airbus Chief Commercial Officer and Head of International, Christian Scherer.

“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,” says Yehia Zakaria.

Zakaria adds: “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.”

“Once delivered the A350-900 will be EGYPTAIR’s flagship aircraft. Adding the world’s most modern and efficient widebody aircraft to the airline’s fleet will be instrumental in expanding its offering, opening new opportunities, particularly in Western US and the Far East,” says Christian Scherer.

As reported, the A350-900s is the only aircraft enabling EgyptAir to open up its network with benchmark economic efficiency – not to mention passenger comfort.
