Boeing and leasing company Avation PLC celebrated the delivery of Avation’s first Boeing airplane, a 777-300ER (Extended Range), that will be leased and operated by Philippine Airlines.
This airplane is the 10th 777-300ER (RP-C7782) (top) for Philippines’ national carrier.
Philippine Airlines took delivery of its ninth 777-300ER (RP-C7781) (below) earlier in the week and will use the new airplanes primarily on routes from Manila to North America. The carrier will fly the 777-300ER directly from Everett, Washington to Vancouver, British Columbia where the airplanes will enter revenue service to Manila.
The 777 is the world’s most successful twin-engine, long-haul airplane. The 777-300ER is equipped with the world’s most powerful GE90-115B commercial jet engine, and can seat up to 386 passengers in a three-class configuration with a maximum range of 7,825 nautical miles (14,490 kilometers).
