Egypt's Air Leisure is planning to shift its widebody operations to an all-A330 fleet, reports ch-aviation.

The Egyptian charter specialist currently operates a single remaining A340-200 dry-leased from EgyptAir which will be disposed of once the last of three ex-Emirates A330-200s enters service. The other two Egyptair A340-200s are currently in storage at Cairo International.

Air Leisure specialises in running charters between China and Egypt as well as scheduled flights between Jeddah and each of Alexandria Borg el Arab, Assiut, Luxor, and Sohag in Egypt.
