The Boeing Company and Jet Airways, India's largest private airline, on Monday celebrated the delivery of the airline's first of 10 777-300ER (Extended Range) airplanes. The airplane was delivered in Jet Airways' new paint scheme, that features a new design, colors and typeface. The airplane will enter service on May 5, commemorating the airline's 14th anniversary of operations.
'Jet Airways' new design is reflective of our new efforts to take our superior passenger service to international destinations in Europe and the United States,' said Jet Airways Chairman Naresh Goyal. 'The combination of the 777-300ER's positive economics and passenger comfort will help ensure the success and profitability of our growing route structure.'

Jet Airways, which originally placed the order for 10 777-300ERs in September 2005, currently operates 49 Classic and Next-Generation Boeing 737-400/-700/-800/-900 airplanes within its fleet. In December 2006, the airline also placed an order for 10 787 Dreamliners.

'The 777-300ER delivers real advantages and has proven its economic leadership and high level of passenger comfort,' said Dinesh Keskar, Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice president of Sales. 'We are honored that Jet Airways has selected Boeing's 777s and 787s to support its international growth strategy.'

The 777 family of airplanes is popular with passengers and airlines because of its fuel-efficient twin-engine design, high reliability, low operating costs, and comfortable and spacious interior. The 777-300ER typically carries 365 passengers up to 7,930 nautical miles (14,685 kilometers).

With the 787 and 777, Boeing offers a complete family of airplanes to cover the 200- to 400-seat market segment. With complementary range, speed, efficiency and operational commonality, yet differing seating and cargo capacities, airlines can use both models in their fleets to tailor capacity to meet seasonal demand.

Jet Airways operates more than 330 daily flights to 49 destinations that span the length and breadth of India and beyond including London, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Colombo and Kathmandu.
