China Airlines has taken delivery of its first Boeing 777-300ER (Extended Range).

The new aircraft is the first of 10 Boeing 777-300ERs that the Taiwanese flag carrier plans to introduce in the coming years.

China Airlines is using the Boeing 777-300ERs to introduce a new cabin interior designed by award-winning Taiwanese architect Ray Chen.

The airline configured the new aircraft to seat 358 passengers in a three-class layout highlighted by the new 'Family Couch' seats in economy class, where three seats convert into a flat surface for rest and relaxation.

"The introduction of the Boeing 777-300ER fleet is an important milestone for China Airlines," said China Airlines Chairman Huang-Hsiang Sun. "Over the past two years, China Airlines has taken a broad new approach and philosophy to cabin design. In addition to enhancing safety and fuel efficiency, China Airlines is making a pioneering move in the airline industry to incorporate Taiwan's cultural creativity into its cabin interior. I am confident that this will leave a lasting impression on passengers and enhance our competitiveness." 

China Airlines will launch operations of their first 777-300ER to Hong Kong this month and will eventually introduce the airplane on transpacific routes, connecting Taipei with major cities in North America, including Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York.
