The first of 12 aircraft that EgyptAir has on order is due to be delivered to the Cairo-based airline in the coming weeks.
 
The A220 for EgyptAir will provide passengers with superior comfort, its innovative cabin design featuring the widest economy seats of any single-aisle aircraft and panoramic windows for more natural light. The aircraft which is outfitted with a brand new cabin layout of 134 seats, will now enter its final phase of completion before delivery.
 
The A220 features state-of-the-art aerodynamics, advanced materials and Pratt & Whitney’s latest-generation PW1500G geared turbofan engines. With a range of up to 3,400 nm (6,300 km), the A220 offers the performance of larger single-aisle aircraft.
 
More than 80 A220 aircraft are flying with five operators on regional and transcontinental routes in Asia, America, Europe and Africa.
