ON 26 APRIL 2016, THE 70TH BOEING 777 JOINED THE COMPANY’S FLEET
PARIS, FRANCE, 2016-Apr-27 — /Travel PR News/ — Air France is expanding its fleet by welcoming a new Boeing 777-300, thus increasing its capacity thanks to 43 Boeing 777-300s, 25 Boeing 777-200ERs and two Boeing 777F Cargo. This 70th aircraft will operate on the Company’s long-haul network.
From taking delivery of its first Boeing 707 at the end of the 1950s, Air France has operated nearly all the Boeing aircraft. Today, the Boeing 777, which joined the Air France fleet for the first time in 1998, is the pillar of the Company’s long-haul fleet which last year served over 179 destinations in 80 countries.
With a fleet of 96 Boeing 777s, the Air France-KLM Group is the world’s second-largest operator of this type of aircraft.
THE BOEING 777, AN AIRCRAFT THAT OFFERS OUTSTANDING ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCES
The Boeing 777 has considerable autonomy, a substantial payload capacity and an exceptional environmental performance. It can fly non-stop over 14,000 km, which is more than enough to cover the airline’s longest route on the network, Paris-Santiago de Chile. Thanks to its powerful engines, the Boeing 777 can even cover very long distances, carrying heavy payloads. With its outstanding energy and environmental performance, this aircraft significantly reduces its CO2 emissions and noise levels.
