Ahmed Shafiq, former presidential candidate and ousted President Hosni Mubarak's last prime minister, is set to face trial on 6 November alongside four leading figures in the Civil Aviation Ministry.
The defendants are charged with selling aircraft for less than its real value.
Shafiq, who went to the Emirates after losing the presidential race in June, is also facing another trial on charges of selling land owned by the Aviation Association to Mubarak's sons, also for below-market prices.
