Will Be Leased To Cathay Pacific
Boeing and International Lease Finance Corp. (ILFC) reached a
milestone this week with the delivery of ILFC's 75th Boeing 777.
The Boeing 777-300ER (Extended Range) is leased to ILFC's customer,
Cathay Pacific Airways. ILFC has ordered 79 777s from Boeing since
1992, more than any other customer.
Cathay Pacific now operates 25 777s, with 22 more 777-300ERs
scheduled to be delivered including two more to be leased from
ILFC. The airplane delivered Wednesday will join the airline's
fleet of seven 777-300ERs, 12 777-300s, five 777-200s and 24
747-400s in passenger service.
To date, 56 customers around the world have ordered 1,080 777s,
making it the most successful twin-engine wide-body airplane on the
market. Currently, Boeing has 360 unfilled orders for the 777.
