Boeing and Turkmenistan Airlines, the national carrier of Turkmenistan, today announced the airline’s plan to extend its long-haul operations by adding a fourth 777-200LR (Long Range) airplane to its fleet.
The commitment, valued at $346.9 million at list price, will be reflected on Boeing’s Orders and Deliveries website once it is finalized.
The new 777-200LR will be the 32nd airplane purchased by Turkmenistan Airlines from Boeing. Turkmenistan’s flag carrier, based in Ashgabat, operates 737, 757 and 777 aircraft models. The airline transports about 3,000 passengers daily in the country and nearly two million passengers annually on its international and domestic routes.
