The Boeing 777-200ER is an optimal aircraft for servicing long-distance intercontinental routes, with an increased flight range of up to 14316 kilometers.
The first Boeing 777-200ER airliner was delivered to KLM Royal Dutch Airlines SIETL on October 27, 2003. For the Dutch airline to use the high-tech Boeing 777 aircraft to replace the aging Boeing 747-300 airliners.
The Boeing 777 was the first aircraft in the world that could fly without landing from Seoul to airports in North and South America, as well as to Europe. The cockpit is equipped with the latest Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) system created by Boeing. The EFB system contains data translated into electronic form, which is necessary for pilots to control the aircraft. This data format simplifies working with them.
Boeing 777-200ER – the aircraft is characterized by high technological effectiveness and economy, low noise level, as well as excellent flight speed indicators, equipped with such innovative equipment as the “Electronic Flight Bag”.
In addition to the Electronic Flight Bag system onboard the Boeing 777, several solutions have been introduced aimed at improving passenger comfort. In particular, the cabin is equipped with a video system with screens mounted in the backs of the seats, and the seats in the business class lounge have reclining ergonomic backs.
This aircraft also became the first Boeing 777 airliner equipped with the Matsushita System 3000i system, which provides storage of more than 300 hours of video and sound recording, reproduced at the request of passengers. Armchairs, the backs of which can recline almost to a horizontal position, are equipped with video monitors, mounted reading lamps, supports for the lumbar region, back massagers, and bedspreads. These airliners will help the airline provide passengers with maximum comfort and reduce operating costs when operating aircraft>. Each of the aircraft can carry 301 passengers in three classes of service.
The Boeing 777 is equipped with the award-winning Boeing Signature Interior, which is characterized by an excellent lighting system and the presence of comfortable, folding down shelves for hand luggage. The Boeing Signature Interior is popular all over the world and passengers can enjoy the comfort provided by this spacious cabin.
Since 1995, the Boeing 777 model has undergone a significant update of avionics systems. On the liners installed new smaller and lighter computers, which are then easily upgraded. In addition to computers, the update affected four more key onboard systems: information management systems, electric load management systems, the main onboard computer, and the air supply control and interior sealing systems.
For a long time, Boeing 777 Liners have gained a reputation for aircraft that do not have a significant negative impact on the environment. This is especially important if flights are operated from European airports, such as Schiphol (Amsterdam), where there are severe noise restrictions.
Also, Boeing 777 airliners equipped with an improved wing and high-performance PW4090 engines manufactured by the American company Pratt & Whitney, which have a lighter design, consume less fuel than competing aircraft. The fuel consumption of the Boeing 777 is approximately 16 percent less than other aircraft of the same class. Reducing fuel consumption reduces the number of harmful emissions into the atmosphere, and also reduces the operating costs of airlines>.
Boeing 777 aircraft not only consume less fuel but also have a lower noise level, which reduces their negative impact on the population living in the area of airports. Noise figures for Boeing 777 engines are significantly lower than those permitted by international ICAO rules Chapter 3 and lower than those permitted by international ICAO rules Chapter 4, which will be introduced in the future.
Boeing 777 airliners are part of the fleets of the largest airlines in the world, including British Airways, Air France, Alitalia, Lauda Air, and El Al. Since the start of the Boeing 777 program in 1990, 622 aircraft of this model have been ordered, and 450 of them have already been delivered to customers.
