Author:   |    Publish date:


KUALA LUMPUR: American aircraft manufacturer, The Boeing Company became the first company to hit over 2,000 orders for its 777 widebody aircraft programme.

In December, BOC Aviation and unidentified customers placed 17 net orders for 777 airplanes, bringing the total to 51 for 2018 and 2,013 since the program launched.

The total includes popular models such as the 777-300ER (Extended Range) passenger jet, the long-range 777 Freighter, and the soon-to-roll out 777X.

The Boeing Company commercial sales and marketing senior vice president Ihssane Mounir said the 777 continues to delight passengers around the world while creating profitable growth for customers.

“This in turn translates to strong demand for the airplane. The staying power of the current 777 is providing a good transition to the new 777X, which will further extend the 777’s performance, economics and range capability,” he said in a statement today.

Mounir said customers in Asia Pacific region have ordered a total of 620 777 airplanes, with 183 orders for customers in Southeast Asia.

“With a large widebody replacement wave approaching, the 777 is well-positioned to build on its long-haul market leadership and support further global network connectivity,” Mounir added.

The 777 beats the next closest widebody airplane by almost 300 orders.
