EgyptAir has received its first Airbus A330-200, one of seven that the Egyptian flag carrier has ordered. Intended for use on routes to Europe and within the Middle East, the Rolls-Royce Trent 700-powered aircraft are configured with 24 business class seats and 244 in economy. “The Airbus A330-200 is by far the top of the aircraft pyramid in the 250 seat class, with a passenger-pleasing cabin, attractive economics and cost saving modern technology,” said EgyptAir Holding Company’s chairman, General Atef Abdel Hamid Mostafa. “EgyptAir will also benefit from the cockpit commonality that the A330 shares with the A320s, A321s and A340s already in its fleet, helping it to be more efficient.” “In adding the Airbus A330-200 to its fleet, EgyptAir joins an increasingly large and successful group of carriers that are flying this modern aircraft, as well as building on the 25 years of partnership that exists between our companies,” added Airbus’s president & CEO, Noël Forgeard.
