EgyptAir’s new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will be flying the return route from Beijing to Cairo this month. The 787-9 inaugural flight to China is scheduled to fly from Cairo to Beijing on August 18 and the first flight from Beijing to Cairo on August 20.

The Boeing 787-9 is the first new model launched by Boeing after the launch of the Boeing 777 program in the late 1990s, with many revolutionary innovations. Its core purpose is to create excellent business opportunities for airlines with leading-edge technologies and to actively improve the air travel experience. The Boeing 787-9 has unprecedented fuel efficiency and range flexibility, while creating a more comfortable flight for passengers, which is also known as the “dream passenger aircraft.”

EgyptAir’s Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner features a two-cabin layout with 30 business class seats and 279 economy class seats. The seat design also incorporates elements of Egyptair for a more comfortable ride.

The business class seats feature a 1-2-1 layout with reverse herringbone business seats that cleverly utilizes cabin space. The 30 Super Diamond fully flat business class seats allow guests to enjoy a spacious and private cabin.

The economy class seats are in a 3-3-3 layout with a seat spacing of 31 inches. The slender design makes the journey more simple and comfortable.

To enhance the onboard experience, each seat in the 787-9 is equipped with a personal entertainment screen, the business class display is 18 inches, and the economy class display is 12 inches. The new entertainment system supports live TV and the operating system is smoother, bringing travellers a more diverse in-flight experience. The on-board WiFi can meet your business and communication needs throughout your flight.

With the advancement of the “Belt and Road Initiative”, China and Egypt have become increasingly close in various fields. More and more Chinese tourists have shown a clear interest in traveling to Egypt and Africa. By mid-August, Egypt will receive their sixth Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. This means that all six 787-9 Dreamliner that EgyptAir ordered from Boeing will be delivered then.

SAS Launches Transfer Testing Solutions At Copenhagen Airport

Published

The Chinese government recently issued new regulations that all passengers on flights to China need to undergo nucleic acid and serum IgM antibody tests in advance. The testing equipment at Copenhagen Airport will be put into use from November 16. Transit passengers need to set aside 4 hours for testing and obtain testing reports. This time is expected to be shortened to 1 hour after 2-3 weeks. Passengers who have undergone pre-boarding double-checks on flights to China at Copenhagen Airport can board directly with the negative test report. Scandinavian Airlines will continue to provide passengers with the latest news about the Copenhagen Airport testing facilities.


More flexible rebooking and cancellation for flights connecting to China

According to the new regulations, transit passengers need to undergo nucleic acid testing and serum IgM antibody testing in countries that fly directly to China, which may require extending their stay in Copenhagen, and thus need to rebook or cancel the original flight to Copenhagen. In order to facilitate passengers to accept the test on time, SAS is allowing passengers to rebook or cancel the flight to Copenhagen for free. The resulting change fee, refund fee and possible fare difference will be all exempted, that is to say, all are free. Normally, European inland segments are not allowed to be changed or cancelled individually. Please note that SAS is not responsible for other expenses incurred due to rescheduling, such as accommodation. There is no refund for cancelled connecting flights.

Extra Check-in Baggage For Students Fly From China

Scandinavian Airlines are now launching very attractive one-way tickets from China. All students departing from China who purchase SAS flight tickets in economy class only need to show a valid student ID at the airport check-in counter to check in one extra piece of luggage. This means that students travelling in economy class (except for Go Light) can carry two pieces of checked luggage, each of which must not exceed 23 kg. The free extra baggage check will be done manually at the airport check-in counter.
