One of our customers has some pretty big expansion plans. And the 777 will be central to that growth.
Kenya Airways is scheduled to receive the first of three 777-300ERs later this month. The airplane recently rolled out of the paint hangar, and as you can see from these photos—it is a beauty.

The 777-300ER will be the largest airplane in Kenya Airways’ fleet once it enters service. Besides being stunning on the outside, the airline is also showing off its interior. The Premier World business-class features full flat-bed seats with leather foot-rests, laptop stowage and armrests that also act as privacy dividers.
The 777-300ER orders are just part of Kenya Airways’ 10-year strategic plan dubbed “Project Mawingu.” The airline plans to increase its fleet size from 44 airplanes to 107 by 2021— and destinations from the current 62 to 115. They’ll use the 777-300ER for direct flights from Nairobi to Guangzhou later this year. Kenya Airways has also ordered nine 787s.
Congratulations to the airline on this gorgeous new addition to their fleet. We’re proud to be a part of your growth spurt.
