Boeing Delivers Air Austral's Third 777

Wed May 25, 2005 9:06 am

The Boeing Company, in conjunction with International Lease Financing Corp. (ILFC), held delivery ceremonies today with Air Austral for the airline's third leased 777-200ER (Extended Range). Air Austral currently operates two Boeing 777-200ER airplanes and has leased its third from ILFC to meet increased passenger traffic on its St. Denis to Paris and Marseille routes.

Air Austral is a French airline based on Reunion Island, a vacation locale in the South Indian Ocean renowned by outdoor adventurers for its mountainous volcanic interior. Boeing's 777 has been touted by travelers to the island for its spaciousness and comfort on long-haul routes and has become the overwhelming airplane of choice for visitors to the island.
