Ethiopian order?

Speaking in Addis Ababa, Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of the airline, would not be drawn regarding a favoured aircraft, noting that Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer all have future products available. He did not rule out Chinese and Russian products but seemed less than enthusiastic.  China has a major investment programme in Ethiopia but the success of the airline over the last two decades has been put down to non-government interference in what is a nationalised business.

Addressed as “Tewolde”, and recently asked to chair the country’s tourist board, the CEO said that it would come down to price and delivery positions, whilst aircraft performance formed a vital part of the total package. The indications were that an order could be announced during the coming months but clearly no timetable has actually been set.  Ethiopian is a very influential airline with the largest third party training operation in Africa.  www.ethiopianairlines.com
