EgyptAir Express to go with C-Series for E170 replacement

Posted 31 October 2017 · Add Comment

EgyptAir Holding has settled on the C-Series to replace its EgyptAir Express unit's fleet of twelve EMB-170s, reports ch-aviation.

Quoting unnamed airline sources, a report claims the Egyptian carrier group has committed to twelve CS300s. It did not reveal if the jets would be acquired direct from Bombardier or via a third party lessor.

EgyptAir Express is planning to dispose of its twelve Embraer Regional Jets during 2018/19 as part of a larger fleet renewal plan that will see EgyptAir withdraw a total of twenty-five aircraft from service over the course of next year.

Aside from the Embraers, four A321-200s are to be disposed of in 2018 while four remaining A320-200s will be sold off in 2018/19. A total of seven A330s are also to be decommissioned in 2019 with three A330-200s to be retained for conversion into freighters for EgyptAir Cargo.
