We started with a goal of opening Africa to more people, to help people discover new places and amazing scenery with the amazing network of Egyptair and the one of our partners.

From day one, we knew codeshares are a must for a virtual airline, this is why we have select a number of partners for you, pilots, to enjoy the whole world and cover all the beautiful places of our dear planet.

These codeshares ensure we have a wide a varied amount of destinations, which you can find below.

Our fleet is composed of 5 different aircraft types: the 738, the 789, the A223, the 77W and the A333.
The most modern aircraft of the fleet is the gorgeous A223, which flies many Medium Haul routes since Egyptair Express fully merged with Egyptair, retiring all E170.
The real workhorse here at Egyptair is the 777-300ER, it flies all around the globe wherever it can meet the demand due to the flow of tourists visiting the breathtaking sites of Gizeh and Abu Simbel.


Fleet Details

The 777-300ER: 6 in our fleet, the triple 7 that we have, is fitted with the GE90-115b engines, the most powerful engines in the market. With its astonishing range, it flies mostly Long Haul routes for us.

image


The A220-300: The A220 is the newest addition to our fleet, bringing a breath of modernity with a completely rethinked cabin. The A223 was ordered in a plan of renewal of our fleet, because of our aging 737s.

image


The 737-800: We currently have 29 aircraft in the fleet. Flies mostly Medium Haul routes and most of our 737s are getting upgraded to 737NG version, for a better customer experience.

image


The A330-300: 4 in our fleet, capable of holding more than 300 passengers, the A333 is a great aircraft for flying Long Haul and Medium Haul whenever a larger aircraft is needed.

image


The 787-9 Dreamliner (operated with the generic livery): Our fuel efficient Dreamliner is mostly used on Long and Medium Haul routes. With a seating capacity of 309 people, the Dreamliner is capable of flying Long Haul thanks to its great fuel capacity and great fuel efficiency.
