The new aircraft type has replaced the Boeing B787 on four weekly flights from Abu Dhabi to Cairo.
Yehia Zakaria, chairman & CEO of EgyptAir Maintenance and Engineering said: “The new cooperation is an extension of providing line maintenance to other aircraft types of Etihad Airways such as A320 and B787 at Cairo Airport. We had provided the required training for our staff on the A350 and added it to our line maintenance capability list to secure the service for the operators of A350 mainly at Cairo as part of our strategy to keep pace with our customers' needs.”
Etihad is the second customer for A350 services after Qatar Airways in 2020.
