Thai Aiways received its 25th direct B777 delivery, a B777-300ER, from the Boeing delivery centre in Everett, Wash. Charamporn Jotikasthira, president of Thai Airways, said: “This is a very special delivery for us – our 25th 777 delivery from Boeing. The flexibility of the 777 family has played a significant role in our continued success and our latest 777-300ER will ensure we continue to expand our long haul markets efficiently and economically.”
THAI has operated nearly every model of the B777 over the last two decades and also currently operates five B787 Dreamliners. THAI Cargo was the first carrier in Southeast Asia to utilise the B777 Freighter and in January the two companies celebrated the airline’s 75th direct delivery from Boeing. The Bangkok-based airline has one additional B777-300ER on order.
