The Boeing 777-200 is a long range, twin aisle, twin-engine jet manufactured by Boeing, the American aerospace company. We operate these aircraft on longhaul routes to North and South America, the Caribbean, Africa, Australasia, the Far East, Middle East and Gulf destinations.
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.
