Ten new 777-300ER aircraft, worth US$3.3 billion at current list prices, will be delivered to Kuwait Airways from November 2016. The airline will use them to launch new routes, but these routes were undisclosed.
Last February, Kuwait Airways agreed to purchase 25 new aircraft including A320-neos and A350s. Boeing said in a press statement that it looks forward to an enduring relationship with Kuwait Airways.
“We appreciate the start of a new partnership with Kuwait Airways,” said Marty Bentrott, vice president of Sales for Middle East, Russia and Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “We are excited to see that the 777-300 ER, which is the preferred long-haul carrier for so many airlines around the world, will now play an important role in the airline’s fleet strategy and expansion.”
