Kano based Max Air Limited has taken delivery of its first Boeing 777-200 aircraft to boost its passenger operations and enhance capacity on scheduled routes, Per Second News.com gathered.

The aircraft arrived at Mallam Aminu Kano Airport (KAN) on June 11, where it was received by the Max Air team. Its arrival marks a significant milestone in the airline’s history as it continues to add more widebodies to its fleet. This has opened doors to a new era of expanded capabilities and an enhanced passenger experience.

The aircraft landed at Kano Airport around 21:00, so only a few people were present to witness its arrival. However, a few airport employees and stakeholders were present to celebrate this exciting achievement by the carrier.

Although the aircraft is new to Max Air’s fleet, it was built in April 2007. It entered service in May 2007, operating flights for Japan Airlines as JA773J.

The aircraft flew for Jet Midwest for sometime and after exiting Jet Midwest service, the triple seven was unused until January 2023, when Max Air acquired it.
