Air France takes delivery of Boeing 777-300ER

LBR Staff Writer Published 05 May 2008

Air France has taken the delivery of its 50th 777-300ER aircraft from Boeing. The Boeing 777-300ER joins a fleet of another 25 777-200ERs that together comprise the core of the airline's long-haul fleet.

Air France is the launch customer for Boeing's newest addition to its freighter family, the 777 Freighter - the first of which is scheduled to enter flight test in late May 2008. Pierre Vellay, senior vice president of new aircraft and corporate fleet planning for Air France, said: This is truly a great day for Air France and Boeing. The 777 is the mainstay of our long-haul fleet and elemental to our success and future growth plans. We look forward to further integration of this exceptional airplane later this year, when Air France takes delivery of the world's first 777 Freighter.
