Consolation Prize for Airbus Eases Sting of Scaled Down Dubai Orders

Ethiopian Airlines Group will leave the Dubai Airshow with a receipt (or more accurately, an MoU) for 11 brand new A350-900s in tow.

The total order book with the carrier now sits at 33 aircraft in all, with 4 of the top-of-the-line A350-1000s. Their fleet today stands at 20 -900 models, the largest operator of the type in Africa. 

Ethiopian Airlines GroupC EO Mesfin Tasew said the new aircraft would be an excellent addition to the brand’s fleet. “We are excited to place this commitment for 11 Airbus A350-900s. As a customer focused airline, we are particularly excited for this fleet as it offers extra comfort to passengers with its features like the quietest cabin in its class and ambient lighting. We are keen to expand our fleet size, acquiring the latest technology aircraft to offer a convenient and memorable onboard experience to our esteemed passengers.”

Christian Scherer, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer, said that the carrier was a great example of what the A350 could do. “Ethiopian Airlines is a great example of how to leverage the exceptional values of the A350 for long-haul travel, playing on the benefits of Ethiopia’s unique geographical position that offers the fastest connections between China and Latin America. We are delighted to further strengthen Ethiopian Airlines fleet, and through this, continue the great relationship we have built up together.”
