Egyptair has begun operating the first of three Airbus A340-200s, alongside an existing A340-300 leased from Gulf Air. The 260-seat Airbuses were ordered in 1995, along with three General Electric GE90-powered Boeing 777s, to supplement its long-haul fleet and replace the airline's fleet of Airbus A300B4s and Boeing 767-200s.
