Egyptair to fly 6 787's

AerCap and Boeing announced at the 2017 Dubai Airshow that EGYPTAIR will lease six Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners from them.  Egyptair is the national flag of Egypt and will lease the aeroplanes from the Dublin-based AerCap, who are rather boastful about being the world's largest 787 lover, with more than 115 of the aircraft either owned or on order.

"The 787 Dreamliner has built a reputation for reliability, operational efficiency and passenger comfort," said Safwat Musallam, Chairman and CEO, Egyptair's Holding Company. "We look forward to the 787 becoming an integral part of Egyptairs' fleet as we progress our modernization and network expansion plans."

"We are pleased that Egyptair has chosen the Boeing 787 Dreamliner to power their growth and fleet modernization," said Ihssane Mounir, senior vice president of Global Sales & Market, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

"AerCap is extremely proud to have been selected by Egyptair to support their widebody fleet renewal program," said AerCap CEO Aengus Kelly. "Our customers around the world have benefitted tremendously from the airplane's efficiency, reliability and comfort. We're confident the addition of these 787-9 aircraft will enhance Egyptair's fleet for many years to come."

AerCap is a global leader in aircraft leasing and aviation finance with nearly 1,100 owned and managed aircraft.

Boeing is still refusing to notify the airlines, operators or owners of the 787's and 737 Max 8's that have been completed with the substandard steel from Kobe.
