May Substitute Longer-Range -300ERs If Needed
On Thursday, Boeing and Asiana Airlines announced completion of
an order for two 777-200ERs (Extended Range). The order is valued
at $438 million at list prices.
The South Korean airline holds rights to substitute the larger
777-300ER which features increased payload and range capability, if
needed, in the future. Asiana currently operates 40 Boeing
airplanes, including nine Boeing 777s.
"The additional 777s are ideal for Asiana's future plans," said
Rob Laird, vice president of Sales for China and East Asia, Boeing
Commercial Airplanes. "The 777 is a valuable asset to Asiana's
successful long-haul operations and we welcome this opportunity to
demonstrate and validate our twin-aisle product strategy success in
meeting the airline's high standards of quality."
The twin-engine Boeing 777 is the most fuel-efficient airplane
in its category. To date, 56 customers around the world have
ordered more than 1,070 777s, making it the most successful
twin-engine wide-body airplane on the market.
Currently, Boeing has a backlog of more than 360 777 orders.
