Air Cairo has taken delivery of the first of two A320-200neos from GECAS, with the second expected in early August.

    These aircraft will expand on the Egypt-based low-cost carrier’s current fleet of seven A320s.

    “Adding these aircraft to our all-A320 fleet will provide Air Cairo with much-needed capacity to meet the needs of our passengers,” said Air Cairo Chairman and CEO Hussein Sherif. “We’re excited to induct two more fuel-efficient A320neos and are grateful to the GECAS team for their support of our growing operations.”

    Mick O’Mahony, GECAS SVP & regional manager, Middle East, Africa and CIS added: “We are so pleased to welcome Air Cairo to the family of GECAS customers and are thrilled they will now operate Airbus’ A320neo powered with CFM’s LEAP engines,” shared  “I’m confident Air Cairo will be putting these aircraft to exceptionally good use in their expanding EMEA network.”
