Airline Updates: Ethiopian Airlines

Ethiopian to Continue its Aviation Technology Leadership in Africa with the First Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner


Leading the way once again, Ethiopian Airlines, the largest and most profitable airline group in Africa, will become the first in the continent to receive and operate the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on October 27, 2017. The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner is the second member of the technologically advanced, ultra-comfortable, fuel-efficient and environment-friendly 787 family that Ethiopian will be receiving. 


Ethiopian was the first in the world outside Japan to receive and operate the 787-8 back in August 2012.

Both the 787-8 and 787-9 offer superior and unmatched on-board comfort thanks to their unique features such as the biggest windows in the sky, high ceiling, less noise, distinctive lighting, higher air humidity as well as 20 percent less fuel. The 787-9 is 20 feet or 6 meters longer than the 787-8 and has more passenger capacity with 315 seats and more cargo space.
