EgyptAir said the Dreamliner arrived to Cairo International Airport from Seattle on Wednesday, marking the last delivery of aircraft contracted between EgyptAir and Boeing since March.
The 787-9 Dreamliner can seat up to 309 passengers, divided into 30 diamond super-full-flat beds in business class and 279 in economy class.
The aircraft is part of a $6 billion upgrade plan by the national carrier to acquire 45 new planes from different companies, in what Egyptair described as the biggest-ever deal made by the company.
