Boeing and Turkish Airlines have signed an order for five 777-300ER jetliners valued at $1.36 billion at current list prices.
It marks the first time Turkish Airlines has purchased new 777s directly from Boeing. The airline currently operates a fleet of 65 Boeing airplanes including Next-Generation 737s and leased 777-300ERs.
The 777-300ER is a significantly lighter jet, reducing its fuel requirement. It can seat up to 365 passengers on flights up to 9,100 miles.
