I don't think Russia has an excuse either, Western countries are just as much a target as them. The point is that Sharm El Sheikh is safe, and that goes for all tourists regardless of nationality.

Looks like the other airports in Egypt have declined on the ranking but Cairo is still going strong. The new terminal 2 is a real masterpiece, I just wish it had a better lounge.

EgyptAir to buy 38 new planes

Source

EgyptAir is expected to sign a deal which will see it purchase 38 aircrafts to boost its fleet and improve its reach into Europe and Asia, Egyptian Minister of Civil Aviation Sherif Fathy revealed yesterday.

Speaking on the sidelines of an official opening ceremony for the largest duty free market hall at the Cairo International Airport, Chairman of EgyptAir Holding Company, Safwat Musallam, said the new deal may cost up to $3 billion and that the new aircrafts will be added to some of the existing lines or used in the event that new routes are announced. Some will also replace old aircrafts which will be taken out of service.

Damn that's ambitious. I hope they invest some money towards improving the quality of their service on international flights though, it's really quite mediocre compared to other Star Alliance members. I think a more "jet-set" approach towards food and drinks would go a long way. The current way meals are presented and served doesn't strike me as particularly exclusive. Look at the presentation of this business class meal:



And I always wondered why they don't serve any kind of alcohol on EgyptAir, it doesn't make sense in a country where alcohol is readily available and legal for everyone. They should at the very least offer to serve beer, wine or champagne in business and first class. It's a big part of the experience for people who are willing to pay more to enjoy their flight. Egyptian airports are definitely not alcohol free, they sell it everywhere. Not just duty-free, even restaurants and cafes serve wine, beer and malt beverages. The decision to not serve alcohol on lounges and planes is mind-boggling. Are they trying to save money? How many tourists choose to fly with a different airline because of this decision?

Egyptair's latest Acquisitions

EgyptAir Holding has announced it has reached an agreement with AerCap for the long-term operating lease of fifteen A320neo aircraft.

The aircraft, which are to be powered by CFM International LEAP-1A engine, are sourced from AerCap’s Airbus (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) order book and are scheduled to deliver to EgyptAir (MS, Cairo Int'l) in 2020.

The jets will be used to replace the Egyptian carrier's existing fleet of four A320-200s and four A321-200s which are to be retired and disposed of in 2018/19.

The announcement was made during the 2017 Dubai Airshow in the presence of Egyptian Minister of Civil Aviation, Sherif Fathi, EgyptAir Holding Chairman and CEO Safwat Musallam, EgyptAir Chairman and CEO Captain Sherif Ezzat, AerCap CEO Aengus Kelly, and AerCap President and Chief Commercial Officer Philip Scruggs.

Didn't EgyptAir just sign a deal with Bombardier as well for 12 new jets?

I believe it was just a Letter of Agreement with an option for 12 more as well but the actual deal hasn't been finalized yet. Surely will be in the coming weeks though!

I heard they'll be putting them to use on domestic routes, which is great, EgyptAir Express could really use some upgrades.
