Egyptair has gone shopping again on the second day of the Dubai Airshow. It announced an order for 10 Airbus A350-900s, a day after the airline secured long-term lease contracts for 18 Boeing MAX 8s. This is all part of the airline’s strategy for the next decade, which should position Egypt and Egyptair for aggressive growth.

Egyptair’s long-haul fleet includes seven Airbus A330-200s and four -300s, as well as six Boeing 777-300ERs. But they are all well between 12.5 to almost 19 years old, so it is time to replace them with newer and more efficient aircraft.
