CAIRO – 3 June 2019: EgyptAir operated Monday its first B787-9 Dreamliner flight to Washington D.C. after the flag carrier airline of Egypt has supported its fleet with dozens of new jets of different models.

The airliner is set to operate three direct flights weekly from Cairo International Airport to Dallas Airport in Washington, using the new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner jets.

Chairman and CEO of EGYPTAIR Airlines Ashraf el-Kholy stated that Egypt has received two B787-9 Dreamliner jets as part of a plan to buy six jets of the same model.

“We are making these investments to give our passengers better flying experiences and further demonstrate our dedication to providing a five-star airline service,” Kholy previously said.

The two planes of that model arrived in Egypt in March and April, respectively. By 2020, a total of 33 new jets will have joined EgyptAir’s fleet, in addition to six Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner jets, 12 Airbus A220-300 planes, and 15 Airbus A320neo aircraft.

The plane can fly for a distance ranging between 14,800 and 15,700 kilometers without transit. The aircraft’s fuel efficiency is 20 percent while its accuracy of quantity take-off is 99 percent.
