Ethiopian to use 787 on African destinations

Ethiopian Airlines has announced rotating destinations, primarily in Africa, for its first 787 Dreamliner.

The first flight of Ethiopian’s 787 Dream Tour will be on August 18, 2012, with a sightseeing flight to Mount Kilimanjaro for around 270 invited guests.
Thereafter, starting from 19 August 2012, the 787 will be operating on rotation basis to African destinations such as Kilimanjaro, Mombassa, Harare, Lusaka, Nairobi, Entebbe, Lagos, Johannesburg, Abuja, Malabo, Douala, Lomé, Accra, Maputo, Luanda as well as to Dubai, Mumbai, Rome, London and Frankfurt.

Mr Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian, said, “Ethiopian Airlines is a truly indigenous African airline, which has been pioneering the African aviation for the last 67 years and it is only natural for us to deploy our first B787 in Africa. In affirmation of its commitment as Africa’s flagship carrier, we are naming our 1st B787 Dreamliner as Africa First”.

Once the airline takes delivery of its 2nd Dreamliner, the aircraft will operate on an assigned scheduled route, which will be announced in near future.
