These days, the airline operates its flights using a fleet of modern and efficient Boeing and Airbus aircraft, including Airbus 321-200 aeroplanes and Boeing 777-200ER aeroplanes.Onboard its aircraft, too, Egyptair has been upgrading its facilities to respond to customer demand for a high quality travel experience.
