EgyptAir will auction nine E170 jets in December

Regional aircraft operated in the EgyptAir Express subsidiary since 2007 and were taken out of service in March 2020

EgyptAir will auction the remaining nine E170LR regional jets in its fleet. The aircraft have been in storage since March 2020 and will be offered at a public auction until December 20th, Ch-Aviation said.

Embraer jets were manufactured between 2007 and 2009 and have 19,500 cycles to 25,500 cycles. The aircraft will be sold together with a pair of CF-34 engines each.

Three more E170s from the original fleet were sold to state-owned leasing company CIAF Leasing, with two of them leased to Jasmin Airways.

Egypt’s state-owned carrier acquired the E170 for EgyptAir Express, a regional subsidiary founded in 2007. They were configured with 76 seats and operated on low-demand routes in the country.

In 2018, EgyptAir announced that the first Airbus A220-300s would integrate its regional arm, but in November of the following year, a restructuring plan ended EgyptAir Express, whose routes and planes were incorporated into the parent company.

Since 2019, the E170s had been taken out of service as the 140-seat A220s were delivered, but the Covid-19 pandemic brought the process forward.

The smallest variant of the E-Jet family, the E170 was the first model launched by Embraer and entered service by LOT in 2004. Only 191 aircraft were produced, the last one delivered in 2017.
