PHOTOS – President Uhuru in The Cockpit of Kenya Airways New Boeing 777-300ER

November 5, 2013
Yesterday, President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto joined Kenya Airways in the naming of their new passenger jet, the 400 seater Boeing 777-300ER.

The new 777-300ER joins the already existing range of Boeing planes in the airline’s fleet – which includes 25 passenger aircrafts and two freighters.

Among the features in the plane’s Premier World section are: full flatbed seats with leather foot-rests, laptop stowage and armrests that also act as privacy dividers, Wi-Fi connectivity for passengers, high quality in-flight entertainment; a 15.4 inch touch screen monitor for each seat, power sockets and USB  ports. 

For the Economy Class, seats are cut above the rest, with articulating seat bottoms for better legroom, four-way adjustable headrests, in-flight handset seatback and large 10.6 inch touch screen monitors. Each seat also has a USB port, with power sockets strategically installed throughout the cabin.

‘Maasai Mara’, as the plane was christened, will begin flights to China later this month.
KQ will receive two more 777-300ER aircrafts next year.

President Uhuru and DP Ruto got a chance to sit in the plane’s cockpit.. Here are some pics.
