The New Spirit Of Africa

Oct 1, 2011
2011 / October 2011

New aircraft. Awards galore. Enhanced route network. These are just a few of the exciting developments unfolding at Ethiopian Airlines, Africa’s premiere carrier. Sweeping around the world, the airline brings the new spirit of Africa to all corners of the globe.

Fleet of the Future

In July, Ethiopian Airlines welcomed its fifth Boeing 777-200LR aircraft to its fleet. The plane, aptly named The Sahara, arrived in Addis Ababa from Seattle via Paris.

In accordance with the carrier’s motto, “The New Spirit of Africa,” The Sahara joins Ethiopian Airlines’ fleet of 777-200LRs named for African destinations including The Blue Nile, Rift Valley, Victoria Falls and Mount Kilimanjaro.

The Sahara is the most recent step toward Ethiopian Airlines’ vision of developing into a world-class African airline. Ethiopian is the first carrier in Africa to operate the 777-200LRs and the first to order the 787 Dreamliner; the first of 10 Dreamliners slated for delivery in 2012.

On Cloud Nine

Cloud Nine, Ethiopian Airline’s premier business class, offers passengers an enhanced on-board experience. The cabin features state-of-the-art electronic sleeper seats and more than 80 entertainment options accessed via personal video screens.

Also part of the business-class experience is a gourmet menu. The on-board dining experience begins with a traditional taste of Ethiopia, as passengers savor injera, unique pancake-like bread. An array of fine wines and spirits accompany the in-flight meals.

Ethiopian’s economy-class seats on the new aircraft are roomier, with a greater recline, more legroom and a more spacious cabin than ever before.

Looking Ahead

Most recently named The African Cargo Airline of the Year and Africa’s Most Profitable Airline, Ethiopian Airlines boasts a long roster of awards and accolades earned throughout the course of its nearly 70-year history. Other notable honors include the Airline Reliability Performance Award, the Silver Boeing Performance Excellence Award and the African Airlines Association Airline of the Year award.

Service to Milan, Ethiopian Airlines’ 63rd international destination, launched in 2011 and its route network will continue to expand with flights to Toronto and Brazil taking off in 2012.
