The latest addition to the Austrian Airlines fleet, a Boeing 777 aircraft featuring the company’s new design and the registration OE-LPF (in the airline language Lima Papa Foxtrot or briefly Papa Fox), recently landed at Vienna Airport.
The Boeing 777 is the first aircraft in the Austrian Airlines fleet to show adaptations to the airline’s new brand identity, as well as special labeling on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Austrian Airlines.
A disproportionately large “60” can be seen on the right side in the flight direction, and two people in flying postures are depicted on each side. The flying posture is derived from the 60th anniversary campaign of Austrian Airlines. In this context, Austrian Airlines employees are shown as if they were flying in line with the motto “Austria is flying”.
The Boeing 777 was previously in Hong Kong, where it was modified for four months to meet Austrian Airlines standards, and from there it was transferred to Vienna.
The long-haul fleet of Austrian Airlines now consists of six Boeing 767 and six Boeing 777 aircraft and is thus complete.
The Boeing 777-200ER has a height of 18.8 meters, a length of 63.7 meters and a wingspan of 60.9 meters, making it the largest aircraft in the Austrian Airlines fleet. It offers room for 306 passengers.
The “Triple Seven”, as the aircraft is called in the airline sector, has a range of up to 11,500 kilometers after loading. It will be deployed by Austrian Airlines on flights to Bangkok, Chicago, Hong Kong and Shanghai, and will also be used in the summer months on flights to Los Angeles, Tokyo and Beijing as well as to Mauritius, Colombo, New York (JFK and EWR) in the winter season, and also to Cape Town starting on October 27, 2018.
