EgyptAir will become the next Airbus A220 (formerly CSeries) operator when its first aircraft is delivered next month.
The airline has 12 A220-300 aircraft on order, with the first pictured here recently having received its paint in Montreal prior to flight testing.
This aircraft is to become SU-GEX (cn 55087).
All of the carrier’s A220s will be operated by EgyptAir Express, and will ultimately replace the carrier’s fleet of Embraer 170LR aircraft.
According to ch-aviation, the A220s will be used on routes from Cairo International to Aswan (weekly), Luxor (9x weekly) and Sharm el Sheikh (weekly) from 6 September 2019, gradually increasing frequencies and destinations as more aircraft are delivered.
