Emirates Airline remains on its course of expansion. On Monday the Dubai-based international airline placed an order with the US aircraft manufacturer Boeing for an additional 30 jets of the 777-300ER series, worth approximately USD 9.1 billion (in list prices!). This increases the number of aircrafts firmly ordered by Emirates to a total of 101 units of this aircraft type. The Arab airline operates currently 53 jets of the 777-300ER type.

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive Emirates Airline & Group: “Emirates is the world’s largest operator of 777s. Our order, adding to 71 777-300ERs previously ordered, affirms our strategy to become a world leading carrier and to further establish Dubai as a central gateway to worldwide air travel.”

The 777-300ER will be operated in a three-class configuration. The freight capacity of the aircraft is 20.1 tonnes. Emirates has 86 Boeing 777 jets in service – three Boeing 777-200s, six Boeing 777-200ERs, ten Boeing 777-200LRs, 12 Boeing 777-300s, 53 Boeing 777-300ERs and two freighters.
