About

Kenya Airways has ordered its 777s on 22nd March 2002.
KQ changed their color scheme after introducing its 1st T7, so one of the four 777s was still flying in old c/s. The new colors mark Kenya Airways' new slogan "The pride of Africa". KQ's first 777 was delivered in 2004, with two more delivered in 2005 and the fourth in February 2007.
"Flying passengers to the wide open spaces of the world on our 777s has always been a unique experience, infused with the natural warmth and hospitality of the Kenyan people," said Mr. Titus Naikuni, CEO of Kenya Airways, during the ceremony for the delivery of the 4th 777.

In October 2013 and May 2014 two 77Ws were delivered, which are leased for 12 years from GECAS.
In the third quarter of 2015 Kenya Airways is ending its 777 services. All long haul routes will be flown with their 787s.
