Posted 25 July 2019 · Add Comment

EgyptAir has taken delivery of its fifth B787-9 Dreamliner. The fifth aircraft is more fuel-efficient and generates fewer greenhouse emissions than similarly sized-aircraft.

 

EgyptAir flight MS3330 was able to make through the use of 30% to 70% the ratio of the bio fuelled to the regular fuel used to operate the flight.

“Our cooperation with our partners in success marks a big step in the development of a renewable jet fuel industry in Cairo, as we all have agreed on putting sustainability first – it is a project we are really proud to be part of as we look at ways to reduce carbon emissions across our operations,” said Ahmed Adel, chairman and CEO of EgyptAir Holding Company.

He added: “We are committed to the sustainable growth of our airline and supporting commercial aviation’s efforts to protect the environment. The 787-9 Dreamliner is a great fit for our network and provides our customers with a responsible choice for air travel.”
