Ethiopian daily at Heathrow

With the addition of an eighth Boeing 787 Dreamliner (of 13 on firm order) Ethiopian Airlines has gone daily from Heathrow to Addis Ababa.  The airline remains in T3 until 17 September when it joins its Star Alliance colleagues in the new Queen's Terminal.

Ethiopian was the first airline in the world outside of Japan to receive the Dreamliner in August 2012; and was the first airline to bring the new jet to Heathrow, London’s largest hub airport.  The existing Dreamliners in the fleet are being utilised for long haul routes between Africa, the USA, Canada and China.  Notably passengers flying to the World Cup in Brazil from Africa are enjoying the benefits this technologically advanced aircraft offers. 

Tewolde Gebremariam, Group Chief Executive Officer of Ethiopian Airlines,  comments: “The 787 is truly without peers in its category both in terms of passenger comfort and operational excellence.  As technology leaders on the continent of Africa we will continue to introduce the latest technologically advanced aircraft with the aim of meeting the high expectations of our valued customers.”

Ethiopian B787s offer a two-class configuration with 24 Business Class/Cloud Nine seats and 246 seats in Economy.   www.ethiopianairlines.com
