Boeing 777-300

The Boeing 777-300 is a long range, twin aisle, twin-engine jet manufactured by Boeing, the American aerospace company. We operate these on routes to Asia and North America.

Often referred to as the “Triple Seven”, it was the world’s first commercial aircraft entirely designed by computer. Its visible features include super-large engines, low-hanging landing gear and a blade-shaped tail cone with a relatively narrow tailfin.

British Airways took part in the design of the aircraft with Boeing. The Boeing 777 emerged as a best seller for longhaul commercial aircraft thanks to its excellent fuel efficiency and cabin comfort. Compared to the 777-200, the Boeing 777-300 features a longer body, raked and extended wingtips, a new main landing gear, reinforced nose gear, and extra fuel tanks.
