Egyptian executive charter company Smart Aviation placed a firm order for a pair of Bombardier Q400 turboprops in late August in preparation for its expansion into scheduled airline operations by year-end. The contract, which includes options for another three of the 74-seat turboprops, calls for delivery by December, at which time the company plans to launch services between secondary domestic ­destinations from its base in Cairo.
