Emirates celebrates Boeing’s 1000th 777 aircraft
As the largest 777 customer, it’s very appropriate that Emirates is the recipient of our milestone 1000th 777, said Jim Albaugh, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
Emirates has set an industry high bar in providing excellent customer service and we’re honored that the 777 is central to its efforts to be a global airline leader.
Emirates is honored to be the recipient of Boeing’s 1000th 777 aircraft whose advanced long range capacity has been instrumental in our success of becoming a truly global airline,” said His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, chairman and chief executive, Emirates Airline and Group. As the world’s largest operator of the 777, we have 93 more 777s on order, which is testament to our belief in the product and the role this aircraft will play in our goal to further establish Dubai as a central gateway to worldwide air travel.
