EgyptAir to receive last of nine Boeing airplanes

EgyptAir will receive the ninth and final Boeing 737-800 Next-Generation aircraft under its USD 864 mn agreement with the company, Al Shorouk reports. The aircraft should be added to the fleet by week’s end. EgyptAir and Boeing had signed the supply agreement in July last year, and Dubai Aerospace Enterprise had announced it would finance eight of the nine planes. Separately, EgyptAir expects to receive the first C-Series plane from its USD 1.1 bn agreement with Canada’s Bombardier in March 2018, an unnamed EgyptAir source says. The remaining 11 planes will be shipped to Egypt over two years at a rate of one plane every two months.
