Ethiopian Airlines, the largest airline in Africa, has announced that it took delivery of its eighth Boeing 787 Dreamliner on 26 June 2014.
Ethiopian was the first in the world outside Japan to receive the B787 in August 2012. The airline will take delivery of further two B787s in 2014. Currently, Ethiopian is the largest operator of the B787 in Africa, serving routes to Africa, Brazil, Europe, the U.S., Canada and China with the aircraft.
The B787 offers passengers unparalleled on-board comfort with greatly reduced noise, higher ceilings, biggest windows in the sky, higher humidity and unique lighting. The aircraft also enables the airline to fulfill its green corporate social responsibility with greatly reduced carbon footprint.
“The 787 is truly without peers in its category both in passenger comfort and operational excellence. As technology leaders in the continent, we will continue to introduce the latest technology aircraft with the aim of meeting the high expectations of our valued customers,” said Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Group.
Ethiopian is a global Pan-African carrier currently serving 82 international destinations across 5 continents using 68 ultra-modern aircraft including B777s, B787s and B737-800s with sky interior.
