type of plane used for cairo trips

Hello,

We are planning on staying at Sensatori hotel next summer and would like to do the cairo day trip.

However my husband is slightly worried about the plane used. Does anyone know what type of plane it is?

Any advice for the day trip is appreciated too as neither of us have been to Egypt before.

Hi

Egyptair uses Embraer 170 jets on the route. Flight time is only an hour - no worries!!

Its a really good trip one not to be missed, the flight goes really fast so nothing to worry about.

We flew with PAS (Petroleum Airline Services) in a 50 seater Dash 8. They served refreshments in both directions.

AMC used to fly MD-83s to Cairo, but I think that was a couple of years ago and it may have changed. Would be worth doing the trip just to fly in an MD-83 again; they don't make them like that anymore....... :-)

We have flown Egyptair Sharm to Cairo several times and they used an Airbus A321 plane which has 3 seats either side of the isle, quite spacious, leather seats and in excellent condition. It was a great flight and takes around 1 hour. You get light refreshements on the plane - biscuits or savoury snacks and a drink - hot or cold. All in all a good experience

Most of the Egyptair flights are now with the Embraer 170. Not a bad little jet.

For the domestic flights, Egypt air ( flag carrier of Egypt ) uses Embraer 170 as friends said above and it is about 55 minutes to reach Cairo from Sharm ElSheiekh

wish it does help
