Cathay Pacific Takes Delivery of 70th Boeing 777 Aircraft

Cathay Pacific has taken delivery of its 70th Boeing 777 aircraft, the last and 53rd Boeing 777-300ER of its confirmed orders.

With this delivery, Cathay Pacifics 777 aircraft fleet now comprises of 53 Boeing 777-300ERs, 12 B777-300s and 5 B777-200s.

The airline is also a launch customer for the B777X with 21 B777-9 airplanes on order.

The 777s have played an important role in Cathay Pacifics fleet modernization and network expansion strategy, said Ivan Chu, Chief Executive, Cathay Pacific Airways. We operate the largest 777 fleet in Asia, and these aircraft offer the range, reliability and flexibility to build multiple daily frequencies on trunk routes, both within the Asia Pacific region and, with the 777-300ERs, on long-haul and ultra-long-haul routes. Our 777 fleet has helped in our efforts to reinforce Hong Kong's position as one of the worlds most important international aviation hubs.

The Cathay Pacific Group today operates flights to nearly 200 destinations worldwide with its own fleet of more than 200 aircraft.
