EgyptAir (MS, Cairo International) has ordered ten A350-900s from Airbus (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac). In an announcement made during the Dubai Airshow 2023, the state-owned carrier said only that the incoming widebodies, whose delivery dates were not disclosed, would become its flagship type, suggesting they will replace its six B777-300(ER)s, the leases for which are due to run out between early 2025 and early 2028.

"Egyptair has firmed up an agreement with Airbus to procure 10 A350-900 aircraft, each boasting a capacity of 340 seats. These aircraft come equipped with cutting-edge technologies and Rolls-Royce XWB Trent engines, known for their modern design and reduced fuel emissions and consumption. As we tackle growing demand across our network, this aircraft is the optimal choice," Chairman and CEO Yehia Zakaria said.

ch-aviation fleets data shows EgyptAir's widebody passenger fleet also entails four A330-200s (average age of 18.3 years) and four A330-300s (average age of 12.5 years). All eight are owned by the carrier itself.
