CAIRO - 23 December 2019: EgyptAir received on Monday the seventh A220-300 aircraft as part of a deal with Airbus Company to purchase 12 aircraft of the same tybe .

The larger member of the A220 Family – the A220-300 was specifically designed and built for the 120-160 seat market. It fuses performance and technology, allowing airlines to connect distant points on continents or sectors between which travel was previously unprofitable or impossible.

The aircraft also leaves half the noise footprint and decreased emissions compared to its predecessor, making it a truly humanity-minded jetliner.

Airbus has delivered more than 80 aircraft of the type A220 to five regional and intercontinental airlines in Asia, the Americas, Africa and Europe, demonstrating the great potential of the new Airbus model.

EgyptAir sealed the deal with Airbus Canada Ltd. to provide the utmost comfort for its passengers. In an innovative design and a wide airframe, it includes 134 seats, the biggest and with the longest leg space in the economy, compared to other airplanes of one aisle.

The plane also has large windows to allow the maximum amount of natural light.

The A220-300 is characterized by high fuel efficiency and passenger comfort. It combines the latest advanced technologies to provide high aerodynamics, high-quality materials and the latest Pratt & Whitney TurboPan engines of the PW1500G.

These engines save at least 20 percent fuel burn per seat compared to previous-generation aircrafts, with a range of up to 3,400 nautical miles (6,300 kilometers).
