Boeing [NYSE:BA] today delivered a 777-200ER
(Extended Range) airplane to Asiana Airlines in the airline's new livery.
The South Korean-based airline introduced its new livery during a celebration in November 2006, which features a tail design using traditional Korean colors on a gray background. The airline's fleet will be converted to the new livery over the next five years.
Asiana operates a mixed fleet of more than 60 airplanes, including 737s, 747s and 767s, that connects more than 60 cities in 17 countries. The twin-engine 777 is the most fuel-efficient airplane in its category, a key element in its leading economic performance, and it releases fewer emissions into the environment than its four-engine competitor.
