Technical Meeting Conducted by Boeing Company on B777-9 Operations at Bandaranaike Airport

As Boeing B777-9 (Passenger) commenced production with a flight test currently underway and will enter into service in the mid of 2025, a technical awareness session was conducted by Boeing Company at Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) on 08th April 2024.
The session was conducted by Mr. Richard Vaisvila, Lead Engineer, Airport Operations, Boeing Airport Operations Engineering.
The design of the B777-9 combines the proven performance of the B777-300ER with the latest advanced technologies of the B787, including a 4th generation composite wing. In order to balance the aerodynamic efficiencies of an Airplane Design Group (ADG) VI wingspan during flight with the airport compatibility of an ADG V aircraft while on the ground, this aircraft incorporates a folding wingtip (FWT) mechanism.
The new configuration results in economic and environmental improvements over today’s B777s. Additionally, this B777 derivative improves on previous derivatives by also minimizing the costs and impacts to airports through the addition of the FWT.
Chairman Eng. Athula Galketiya, senior officials of AASL and Sri Lankan Airlines attended the awareness session.
