EgyptAir has taken delivery of its first of 15 A320neo Family aircraft, on lease from AerCap, becoming the first airline in Africa and Middle East to operate both the A320neo and A220, the most modern and fuel-efficient single-aisle aircraft types.

 

Alongside the A220, the A320neo will be an integral part of EGYPTAIR’s fleet modernisation plan that will replace its existing ageing single aisle fleet.

 

EgyptAir’s A320neo is powered by CFM Leap 1 engines and configured in a two-class cabin with 142 seats. This will include 16 business class seats offering a generous 48” seat pitch and an economy cabin with 126 seats offering 29-30” pitch. Passengers in both cabins will also benefit from a superior cabin ambience featuring relaxing mood lighting inflight entertainment and Wi-Fi connectivity.
