Discover The World's First Coach Outlet In A Boeing 747 At Freeport A’Famosa Outlet!

By Ayunie

In an exciting development for both aviation enthusiasts and shoppers, Freeport A'Famosa Outlet proudly introduces Coach Airways, an innovative retail concept store and café housed within a transformed 1981 Boeing 747-230B aircraft. This ambitious project, which commenced in April 2021, has culminated in the successful acquisition, transfer, assembly, and completion of the Boeing 747 in May 2023. With its impressive dimensions-- a length of 231 feet 10 inches and a wingspan of 195 feet 8 inches-- the Boeing 747 now takes on a new role as the world's first-ever Coach outlet in an aircraft of this magnitude.
