In addition, EgyptAir will use 15 Airbus 320 aeroplanes. The company is working to agree with the manufacturers to have the right to use other planes of the same type with the same conditions and prices in the future. EgyptAir has also received 59 offers from banks to fund the venture to upgrade its fleet as part of a plan aimed at growth in the coming period.
Chairperson of EgyptAir Holding Company Safwat Mosallam said the offers were put forward by local financing institutions and banks that had agreed in principle to finance the new aircraft deal for the company.
He noted that Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) also expressed its willingness to finance the deal, especially as it financed the company's latest deal that included nine Boeing B737-800 NG worth $868m.
