Embraer delivered the first of six EMBRAER 170 jets, today, may 14th, to EgyptAir Express, the new subsidiary of the Egyptian flag carrier, EgyptAir. This aircraft is the first E-Jet to operate in that country.
EgyptAir selected the EMBRAER 170 in September 2006, placing an order for six aircraft, plus six options. The E-Jets will serve as the backbone of EgyptAir Express fleet, flying to primary and secondary destinations within its domestic and regional markets.
The EMBRAER 170 jets of EgyptAir Express are configured with leather seats, comfortably seating 76 passengers.
Also, Embraer and EgyptAir are studying the possibility of establishing an authorized service center for the E-Jets in the region, to be run by EgyptAir M&E.
