Turkish Airlines has taken delivery of its first Boeing 777-300ER.

The milestone delivery marks many firsts for the airline. The new airplane is Turkish Airlines' first 777 directly purchased from Boeing and the first of 12 777-300ERs Turkish Airlines has on order with Boeing from 2009. The aircraft is also the first to feature Turkish Airlines' new "Comfort Class" cabin.

"Turkish Airlines continues to grow as a global airline with the 777 helping us to expand into new markets in Asia and the Americas," said Hamdi Topcu, Chairman of Turkish Airlines. "The addition of new Boeing 777-300ERs exemplifies our commitment to delivering high quality service and comfort to our passengers, while enabling us to continue our profitable growth."

The 777-300ER brings new twin-engine efficiency to the airline's long-haul fleet. The airplane is powered by General Electric GE90-115BLs, the world's largest and most powerful commercial jet engines.

With this delivery, Boeing is scheduled to deliver four additional 777-300ERs to Turkish Airlines by the end of 2010.

The Boeing 777-300ER can seat up to 365 passengers in a three-class configuration and has a maximum range of 7,930 nautical miles (14,685 km).
