Emirates Airline world's largest operator of B777
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 31 - 07 - 2009

Emirates has become the world's largest airline operator of Boeing 777 aircraft with the arrival of its 78th Boeing 777 on Thursday. Emirates has another 28 Boeing 777s pending delivery, worth over $7 billion at list prices, and it is also the only airline to operate every model in the Boeing 777 family: -200s, -200ERs, -200LRs, -300s, -300ERs and freighters. The newest addition to the Emirates fleet is a Boeing 777-300ER configured for long distance journeys.
Tim Clark, president, Emirates Airline said: “The 777s form the backbone of our fleet, and we have configured these aircraft to give us maximum flexibility in terms of route deployment. Emirates' 777s today fly to six continents from our Dubai hub, operating routes within a two-hour distance to long-range journeys of 16 hours non-stop.”
“The 777 is an excellent aircraft in terms of operating economics, and importantly, the new technologies incorporated within enable us to fit it out with the latest onboard systems and passenger amenities,” he added.
Emirates is committed to maintaining a young and modern fleet, which enhances our passengers' comfort and safety and also makes our aircraft some of the most environmentally-friendly in the skies.” “The 777 is the world's most successful twin-engine, long-haul airplane and Emirates has contributed significantly to the program's success, both in becoming the now largest 777 airline customer and through its continued feedback on quality step improvements we've made to the airplane,” said Marty Bentrott, Boeing vice president of Sales for the Middle East, Central and South Asia.
Emirates recently completed an upgrading program for its existing 777 fleet, and now all of its 777 aircraft boast its award-winning ice (information, communication, entertainment) system, which offers passengers in all cabin classes an unrivalled choice of up to 1,200 channels of the latest movies, TV programming, music and games.
Emirates received its first 777, a Boeing 777-200, in 1996. Its current 777 fleet comprises: three -200s, six -200ERs, 10 -200LRs, 12 -300s, 45 -300ERs, and two 777 freighters. Emirates operates 137 fleet of Boeing and Airbus aircraft to 99 cities in 60 countries on six continents.
