The Boeing 777X widebody will make its worldwide debut at the Singapore Airshow 2022, according to Boeing. The Boeing 777X aircraft will be making its inaugural trip to Asia.
The new Boeing 777X will perform airborne maneuvers throughout the exhibition, displaying its revolutionary carbon-fiber composite wings and quiet GE9X engines.
“We are looking forward to gathering with our industry colleagues in Singapore, in support of the recovery of aviation in the Southeast Asia region, as it provides us an opportunity to engage with customers, government officials, partners, suppliers, media and other stakeholders from the region,” Alex Feldman, president of Boeing Southeast Asia, said.
On February 15, the Singapore Airshow 2022 will begin.

Boeing debuted its 777X at the Dubai Airshow 2021 in November 2021.
The Boeing 777X, the new generation of the 777 family, was introduced in 2013 and has already received over 300 orders.
The first prototype, however, flew for the first time in January 2020, despite various issues and delays.
The 777X series, which includes the 7777-8, 7777-9, and 777-10 types, is designed to replace older 777 versions and compete with Airbus widebodies like the A350.
“Building on the best of the industry-leading 777 and 787 families, the 777-9 will be the world’s largest and most efficient twin-engine jet, delivering 10% better fuel use, emissions, and operating costs than the competition,” Boeing commented earlier in 2021.
The Boeing 777-9 model, which will be unveiled at the Singapore Airshow in 2022, can transport up to 426 passengers. According to Boeing data, it has a range of 13,500 kilometers (7,285 nautical miles).
With an order from Qatar Airways, Boeing launched the highly anticipated cargo version of its 777X aircraft in late January 2022.
