The number of airlines operating Boeing 777-300ERs continues to increase, with Garuda Indonesia becoming the latest carrier to introduce the long-hail aircraft into its fleet.

In total, Garuda has ordered 777-300ERs (Extended Range) as part of its ‘Quantum Leap’ fleet revitalization programme, with the first one delivered on Tuesday.

"The 777 is an extraordinary airplane that will bring a new level of experience for our first and business class passengers," commented Emirsyah Satar, president director of Garuda Indonesia, in a press release.

The airline’s 777-300ERs has been configured with eight first-class suites, 38 business-class seats and 268 seats in economy class. The aircraft, which features GE90-115B engines, is also equipped with in-flight internet connectivity.

"We're proud to celebrate this milestone with Garuda Indonesia," said Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president Asia Pacific and India Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

"The world's elite airlines fly the 777 and I'm sure Garuda's passengers will notice the difference from the moment they step on and see the new interior,” he added.
