EgyptAir Boeing 777-300(ER) arriving at Toronto Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) from Cairo International Airport (CAI) on a delightful morning 2019. Established in 1932 as Misr Airlines, EgyptAir has been subject to numerous name changes throughout almost 90 years of operation. In 1949, when the Egyptian State became the sole shareholder of the air company, the title was changed to Misrair for just under a decade. In 1958, upon the formation of United Arab Republic (Egypt and Syria), Misrair was renamed United Arab Airlines (UAA). Finally, in 1971 as the country changed its name to Arab Republic of Egypt, the airline followed suit and was rebranded to the modern EgyptAir. Note the falcon on the the fuselage and tail, a unique logo rooted in Egyptian mythology, taken from Horus, "the winged god of the sun". From their motto "Enjoy the Sky", enjoy the image!
