The Boeing Company confirmed today All Nippon Airways' (ANA) decision to add the Boeing 777-200ER (extended range) to ANA's existing 777 fleet. This decision makes ANA the world's only airline to have ordered all three of the Boeing 777 models - the 777-200, -300 and -200ER.
"It is a privilege to have ANA, one of the world's finest international airlines, as the first customer to order all three of our 777 models," said Larry Dickenson, senior vice president - Asia/Pacific Sales. "This signifies the confidence that ANA has in Boeing, our products and our mutually beneficial relationship."
The 777-200ER is an extended range model that can fly nearly 7,800 nautical miles (14,439 kilometers or 8,861 statue miles) non-stop from Tokyo to the East Coast of the United States. It is the world's longest-range airplane. The 777-200ER seats up to 305 passengers in a three-class configuration. Because of the versatility of the Boeing 777 family of airplanes, the passenger cabin can be converted to meet market demands by modifying the number and arrangement of seats and size of classes.
"We are very pleased with Boeing widebody aircraft, especially the 777 model," said Kichisaburo Nomura, president and chief executive officer - All Nippon Airways. "All three derivatives fulfill our mission requirements ranging from domestic and regional to international destinations. The versatility of the 777 enables ANA to further economize our fleet operations."
Including this order, 28 customers worldwide have placed orders for nearly 430 777s. Since its launch in 1990, the Boeing 777 has been selected by passengers as the most preferred airplane in its class.
