No, the old travel ban (EC 13769) is revoked and the Justice Department has dismissed its appeal of the Seattle federal court ruling.
Executive Order 13769 is revoked as stated in the last few lines of the new executive order (13780):
Sec. 13. Revocation. Executive Order 13769 of January 27, 2017, is revoked as of the effective date of this order.
In addition, the Department of Justice has dismissed its appeal of the Seattle federal court ruling that suspended the first order (13769) on Tuesday.
As reported by Reuters:
The U.S. Department of Justice on Tuesday said it would voluntarily dismiss its own appeal of a Seattle federal court ruling that had suspended President Donald Trump's first executive order concerning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.
