Milestone: Emirates Takes Delivery of 150th Boeing 777
Boeing and Emirates Airline today celebrated the simultaneous delivery of three Boeing 777 aircraft: – two B777-300ERs and one B777 Freighter – marking the entry of the 150th 777 into Emirates' fleet.
Today's delivery marks the first time in 15 years that Boeing has delivered three 777s at one time to a single customer.
Emirates is the world's largest operator of the 777 and also the only airline ever to operate all six of the Boeing 777 variants introduced into service by Boeing.
Emirates ordered its first Boeing 777s in 1992 with delivery beginning in June 1996. The airline's order book for the 777 continued to grow over the following years including a then record-breaking order for 50 777-300ERs at the 2011 Dubai Airshow and 150 777Xs at the 2013 edition.
