Boeing and El Al Airlines finalise order for two B777-200ERs
"The Israeli market is experiencing a significant upswing in air traffic. We are delighted that El Al continues to choose the 777 as the most efficient airplane to meet increased demand for long-haul service," said Scott Carson, vice president of Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
The twin-engine 777 is the most fuel-efficient airplane in its category, a key element in its leading economic performance, and it releases fewer emissions into the environment than its four-engined competitor.
"The purchase of the 777s is in accordance with El Al's business strategy to acquire wide-body long-range aircraft, in order to provide passengers the best service and product quality," said Haim Romano, president of El Al Airlines.
To date, 43 customers around the world have ordered 779 777s. The 777 has one of the most spacious passenger cabins ever developed, offering superior comfort for passengers.
