Air France last week took delivery of its' 50th 777. The Boeing 777-300ER (Extended Range) is the carrier's 25th of that model type and joins a fleet of another 25 777-200ERs that together comprise the core of the airline's long-haul fleet.

Pierre Vellay, senior vice president of New Aircraft and Corporate Fleet Planning for Air France said, "The 777 is the mainstay of our long-haul fleet and elemental to our success and future growth plans. We look forward to further integration of this exceptional airplane later this year, when Air France takes delivery of the world's first 777 Freighter."

Air France is the launch customer for Boeing's newest addition to its freighter family, the 777 Freighter - the first of which is scheduled to enter flight test in late May.

With the delivery of its first 777 Freighter this year and through the operation of a single 777 platform, Air France will achieve significant synergies between its cargo and passenger business.

"Air France's robust utilization of the 777 speaks volumes about the airplane's performance and capabilities," said Marlin Dailey, vice president of Sales, Europe, Russia & Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "We congratulate Air France on its 50th 777 delivery and it's rewarding to see yet another 777-300ER join the airline's fleet."
