Boeing has announced that KLM Royal Dutch Airlines ordered two additional Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The order was previously listed as an unidentified customer in Boeing’s order book .

The Dutch carrier currently operates a fleet of 29 Boeing 777 jets. This includes both the 777-200ER and 777-300ER version.

KLM’s continuing interest in the 777-300ERs shows the enduring appeal and value of the 777, thanks to its outstanding operating economics, superior performance and popularity among passengers. Ihssane Mounir, Commercial Sales & Marketing at Boeing

Besides the Boeing 777, KLM’s current long-haul fleet consists of Airbus A330, Boeing 747-400 and 787 aircraft. It has recently taken delivery of its first Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner. Furthermore, Boeing 737 and Embraer E-jets are used on shorter routes. KLM announced a new firm order for 15 of the latter aircraft during the Paris Air Show 2019. In addition to that order, Air France-KLM have recently announced that the French carrier will take over the Airbus A350 jets which have been ordered, whereas KLM is set to receive six additional Boeing 787 Dreamliners that were originally intended for Air France.
