Boeing’s newest jetliner, the 777X, has taken to the skies, commencing the next phase of its rigorous test program.
Based on the popular 777 and with proven technologies from the 787 Dreamliner, the 777X embarked on a nearly 4-hour test flight from Paine Field in Everett, Washington, to Seattle’s Boeing Field in late January 2020.
“Our Boeing team has taken the most successful twin-aisle jet of all time and made it even more efficient, more capable and more comfortable for all.”
Stan Deal, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
The new 777X combines the best of the 777 and 787 Dreamliner cabins with new innovations to deliver the flight experience of the future. Passengers will enjoy a wide, spacious cabin, large overhead bins, larger windows, better cabin altitude and humidity, as well as less noise and a smoother ride.
“We love new aircraft development and the push from manufacturers for improved efficiency and passenger experience,” said The Travel Authority Group’s Managing Director, Peter Hosper.
“Both Boeing’s 777 and 787 Dreamliners have proven themselves to be exceptional aircraft, and we’re excited about the best of both of those aircraft coming together in the 777X.”
Boeing expects to deliver the first 777X in 2021.
The new aircraft program has secured 340 orders and commitments from leading carriers around the world including ANA, British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Lufthansa, Qatar Airways and Singapore Airlines.
