Kenya Airways receives second B777-300ER aircraft

05 May 2014, 12:03

Nairobi - Kenya Airways has received a second B777-300ER aircraft, a move officials said highlighted the airline's drive to expand and modernize its fleet.

The aircraft are from Seattle in the United States, where it was manufactured by Boeing.

Evanson Mwaniki, Chairman of the Kenya Airways' Board of Directors, said that the airline's fleet expansion will increase its competitiveness by delivering a world-class experience to customers.

"This is the second of 10 new aircraft that we expect this year. The acquisition of these aircrafts will pave way for the introduction of new intercontinental flights and increasing the frequency on existing ones,".
Mwaniki added.

The new B777-300ER aircraft will commence operations on June 2, flying between Nairobi and Amsterdam.

The first B777-300ER aircraft, which currently flies directly to Guangzhou, will also fly to Lagos in Nigeria from June.

The new B777-300ER joins an already existing range of Boeing planes in the airline's fleet - which includes 27 passenger aircraft and one freighter.

This year, Kenya Airways expects five more Dreamliners, 2 Boeing 737-800ER, and another Boeing 777-300ER.
