Swiss International Air Lines has taken delivery of its first Boeing 777-300ER.

The latest addition to Swiss' fleet touched down in Zurich on Friday following a non-stop 4,545 nautical miles (8,418 kilometers) delivery flight from Boeing's Everett Delivery Center in Everett, WA, USA.

"The delivery of our first flagship marks a new era in Switzerland's aviation history," said Harry Hohmeister, CEO of Swiss. "As of today, our customers will enjoy a new dimension of air travel experience."

The 777-300ER is the new flagship of Swiss' long-haul fleet and is configured with 340 seats, 8 in First Class, 62 in Business Class and 270 in Economy, with wireless internet connectivity throughout.

Swiss' 777-300ER feature a totally redesigned cabin interior to enhance passenger comfort and will be initially deployed on the airline's service between Zurich-New York JFK.

In addition to this delivery, Swiss has eight unfilled 777-300ERs on order from Boeing.
