Based in Karachi, Pakistan International Airlines has been renewing its long-haul fleet to accommodate increased demand for air travel as well as to introduce new routes.
Pakistan International Airlines announced a firm order for five Boeing 777-300ERs on February 20, 2012, in a deal which Boeing valued at nearly $1.5 billion at list prices. The order also included purchase rights for five additional 777-300ERs
In 2002, Pakistan’s flag carrier became the world’s first airline to purchase all three passenger models of the Boeing 777 family and in that year was also the launch customer for the Boeing 777-200LR(longer range) jet.
Last year was the best-selling year ever for the 777 program, with Boeing’s net orderbook of 200 777s in 2012 surpassing the previous annual record of 154, set in 2005.
The Boeing 777-300ER is powered by General Electric GE90-115BLs, the world’s largest and most powerful commercial jet engines. The aircraft also features the Boeing Signature Interior, which according to Boeing offers wider seats, wider aisles, more headroom and more seating flexibility.
