Boeing 747-400

Boeing 747-400

Also known as the “Queen of the Skies” or the “Jumbo Jet”, the Boeing 747-400 has been part of our fleet since the late 1990s. For 37 years, the -400 maintained the record for the aircraft with the most seating capacity for passengers. Bringing all these passengers to amazing destinations, such as San Francisco, Paramaribo or Nairobi (destinations may differ per season), this aircraft is a real world traveller. All 5 of our Boeing 747-400’s are named after famous worldwide cities: Guayaguil, Lima, Nairobi, Hongkong and Johannesburg.
