Egyptair Receives First A330-300 From Airbus

Cairo-based Egyptair has taken delivery of its first A330-300 aircraft from European manufacturer Airbus. The new jet is the first of 5 for the airline and joins its existing Airbus A330-200, A340-200, Boeing B777-200ER and B777-300ER aircraft forming the mainstay of its long-haul fleet. Egyptair has fitted the new aircraft with 301 seats in a 2-class configuration featuring improvements to the onboard product.


In Business Class, passengers can relax or enjoy a comfortable sleep onboard with 36 seats reclining into 160-degree angled-flat beds, with inflight entertainment options delivered via a 15.4-inch personal screen, while Economy Class passengers are seated in 265 slimline seats that are wider and incorporate a personal monitor in the seatback.


The new jet is also the first in Egyptair’s fleet to feature in-seat power supply in every seat that allows passengers to charge their personal electronic devices, as well as offer some of the latest communications technology. Equipped with onboard wireless internet and mobile phone services, travellers will be able to surf the internet, check emails and SMS or make phone calls throughout their flights.


Egyptair’s A330-300 will be deployed on its daily nonstop service between Cairo and London (Heathrow), MS 777/778. From 31 October to 31 December 2010, the airline will also operate the type on flights MS 910/911 to Dubai. For more information, visit
