EgyptAir ordered 24 CS300’s at Dubai yesterday, 12 firm orders and 12 purchase rights.
The aircraft will be operated by EgyptAir Express mainly on regional and domestic routes. They will replace 12 Embraer E170’s and the rest will be used to develop new routes.
The aircraft will be delivered from Montreal not from the US assembly plant.
EgyptAir said that the Airbus takeover of the project gave it the confidence it needed to make the order.
