EgyptAir to receive Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner run on biofuel
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 24 - 07 - 2019

State-owned airline EgyptAir will receive on Wednesday a B787-9 Dreamliner biofuel-run aircraft from the United States.
This aircraft, operated using biofuel to reduce emissions, is first of its kind to be used by the Egyptian airline.
It is the fifth B787-9 Dreamliner aircraft to be received by EgyptAir.
The jet took off on Tuesday from the aircraft delivery centre at the Everett factory in Seattle, in the longest flight in the history of Egyptian civil aviation.
The first B787-9 Dreamliner aircraft joined the EgyptAir fleet in March, while the fourth joined in early July.
These aircraft are currently serving the company's international lines of Washington, Frankfurt, Paris, Kuwait, and Dubai, and are scheduled to operate on other lines during the coming period.
The 787-9 Dreamliner can seat up to 309 passengers, divided into 30 Diamond Super-Full-Flat Bed in business class and 279 in economy class.
The Dreamliner aircraft is part of a $6 billion upgrade plan by the Egyptian carrier to acquire 45 new planes from different companies, in what EgyptAir described as the biggest-ever deal made by the company.
