Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Monday, 14 July 2008

Air India's newest Boeing 777-300ER (Extended Range) airplane arrived Saturday in Farnborough, United Kingdom, ahead of today's opening of the Farnborough International Airshow. The 777-300ER will be on display during the air show highlighting its new livery, interior and passenger amenities.

The 777-300ER is the 10th 777 delivered to Air India from its December 2005 order of 68 Boeing jetliners.

The aircraft, named "Jammu and Kashmir" in keeping with Air India's tradition of naming its 777s after the various states of India, has a three-class configuration, including four first-class, 35 executive class and 303 economy seats. The airline will operate the 777-300ER on its India to United States via London route.

In July 2007, Air India, India's national flagship carrier, became the first India-based airline to operate nonstop flights from India to the United States with its first 777-200LR (Longer Range) Worldliner airplane.
