Air France Takes Delivery of 70th Boeing 777

Air France has taken delivery of its 70th Boeing 777.

 The French flag carrier has played a pivotal role is the success of the 777 program and was the launch customer for both the 777-300ER in 2004, and the 777 Freighter in 2009. Air France took delivery of its first 777-200ER in March 1998.

"The 777 range has been one of the pillars of Air France's fleet growth," said Frdric Gagey, CEO of Air France. "The Boeing 777 has gained a reputation for its reliability, economic performance and comfort, offering our passengers the highest standards."

Since the late 1950s when it took delivery of its first 707, Air France has operated nearly every commercial airplane Boeing has produced. Today, the 777 is a workhorse of the Paris-based carrier's long-haul fleet, with the airline serving more than 179 destinations in 80 countries last year.

Air France is part of the Air France-KLM Group, which is the second largest 777 operator in the world. The group also has unfilled orders for 25 787 Dreamliners as well as lease agreements for an additional 12 787s.
