Reading Time: 1 minute

Boeing has just revealed its latest airliner, the 777X, at the 2013 Dubai Airshow. It’s the first by the company to boast folding wing-tips (based on the 787 Dreamliner), which increase wingspan and, as a result, fuel efficiency, without limiting airport access. The 777X will be both the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world. This model will be powered by GE’s GE9X engine.

The airplane will be 12 percent more fuel efficient than any competing airplane.” The company has already received a reported 342 orders for the new aircraft.
