Azorra announces the purchase of 12 Airbus A220-300s from EGYPTAIR, the flag carrier of Egypt.

Azorra is acquiring the aircraft from EGYPTAIR to support the airline’s ongoing fleet transformation, as it seeks to expand its offering to passengers.

John Evans, CEO and Founder of Azorra, says: “Our strong partnerships with Airbus and Pratt & Whitney have been key to facilitating this creative transaction. These young, well-maintained aircraft with freshly overhauled, updated engines from Pratt & Whitney have strong market demand and are very attractive to Azorra’s rapidly growing customer base.

“We are so grateful for EGYPTAIR’s trust and confidence in Azorra to provide a fleet transition solution, while clearing the path for new Airbus widebody aircraft.”

Eng. Yehia Zakria, CEO & Chairman of EGYPTAIR Holding, adds: “We highly value the creativeness shown by Azorra. We are thankful to the team for their commitment which led to such a successful transaction.”

The addition of the 12 aircraft from EGYPTAIR complements Azorra’s current A220 orderbook, with the majority already placed with airline customers across the globe.
