China Airlines welcomed the first co-branded Boeing 777-300ER
On 16 May 2016, Boeing and China Airlines celebrated the world's first co-branded Boeing 777-300ER. The event took place at Everett's Boeing base, marking the delivery of the 10 triple seven extended range from the China Airlines fleet.
With this delivery, China Airlines operates 10 Boeing 777-300ER and continues to support long-haul routes to destinations in North America and Europe. All 777-300ER China Airlines aircraft are configured to accommodate 358 passengers in a three-class configuration. Boeing 777-300ER is powered by two powerful GE90-115B engines and has a range of up to 14490 kilometers.
China Airlines and Boeing also have a history of co-branded aircraft. In 2004, the Taiwanese operator received its latest Boeing 747-400 in common livery with Boeing. The aircraft was nicknamed the "blue whale" by the airline and was the first widebody in the co-branded livery in the world.
