Ethiopian Airlines has received the first 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.

Ethiopian Airlines currently flies to more than 100 international destinations in five continents using 93 most modern and youngest fleet,  20 of which are B787 Dreamliner, deployed on its long haul routes. It was back in 2011 that Ethiopian took delivery of its B 787 Dreamliner fleet.
