Kuwait Airways has announced its intent to purchase 10 B77-300ER from US aircraft manufacturer Boeing. The order is worth US$3.3 billion at current list prices.
“Boeing looks forward to an enduring relationship with Kuwait Airways and we are excited to see that the 777-300ER airplane, which is the preferred long-haul carrier for so many airlines around the world, will now play an important role in the airline’s fleet strategy and expansion,” said Marty Bentrott, vice president of sales for Middle East, Russia and Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
As one of the most popular long-range aircraft in the industry today, the “triple seven” extended range variant has already amassed a total of 758 orders.
The aircraft is expected to replace Kuwait Airways’ existing A340-300 airplanes. The carrier’s long-haul fleet also consists of a single B777-200ER, while it also has an existing order for ten A350-900 with deliveries due to begin in 2019.
