KLM to include two more Boeing 777-300ER in its fleet

Seattle, Washington - Boeing has officially confirmed that the Dutch flag carrier KLM has ordered two additional 777-300ERs.

KLM currently operates 14 Boeing 777-300ER. With the new orders, the number of 777s in the Dutch operator's fleet will reach 16.

The order agreement for two Boeing 777-300ER is valued at $751 million at the list price.

KLM has been flying with the Boeing 777-300ER since 2008. KLM's 777-300ERs are configured to accommodate 34 passengers in Business Class, 40 in Economy Comfort and 334 in Economy Class.

KLM will receive its additional 777-300ERs at the end of 2020.

The Dutch partner of the AirFrance-KLM Group is set to become an all Boeing operator with recent arrangements. The airline has exchanged its Airbus A350-900 orders with the Boeing 787s of Air France.

There are 14 Dreamliners (13 Boeing 787-9 and one Boeing 787-10) in service with the Dutch Airline. 14 more Boeing 787-10 are expected to join the fleet over time.

KLM currently operates only 13 older version A330 (eight A330-200 and five A330-300) against the 107 Boeing jets.
