Kuwait Airways’ latest Boeing 777-300ER has been delivered to the national carrier of Kuwait, the sixth of 10 of the jetliners on order, which began deliveries just four months ago.
The new aircraft, which was delivered from Paine airfield in Washington, is to be called Meskan – named after the small Kuwaiti island just off the wast coast of the mainland.
After the announcement, Mr. Alex Sahni, the CEO of MECCTI, declared: “MECCTI Ltd team is proud to be part of Kuwait Airways expansion. We had a successful recruitment event in Istanbul, as we welcomed 60 pilots of B737 and A320.”
The addition of Meskan brings Kuwait Airways’ operational fleet up to 25, with the five 777-300ER aircraft already in service.
