“The B787-9 aircraft is the most technologically advanced aircraft,” Capt. Adel said. “We will continue to adhere to our strategic vision being the preferred airline for Egypt and worldwide travellers’, bringing more advanced products and better service to passengers.”

He said: “We are pleased to welcome also the first Airbus A321neos, as we continue to reconfigure our fleet. Over the past few years, we have established a strong and sustainable partnership with AerCap that allows us to continue to offer our customers the service and comfort they are used to.”
