About

Ethiopian Airlines placed its order for five 777-200LRs, valued 1.3 billion US-$ on 28 July 2009. First delivery was on 17th November 2010.

"The 777-200LR is the only airplane in the world that offers the range and efficiency Ethiopian needs to serve long-haul markets and further position Addis Ababa as a strategic hub for East Africa," said Ihssane Mounir, VP of Sales for Latin America, Africa and the Caribbean. "The strategic long-range feature of the 777-200LR will again help Ethiopian expand its network and will be a perfect complement to its 787s."

"The Boeing 777 will be integral as we bring our business to the next level " said Ethiopian Airlines CEO Ato Girma Wake.

Ethiopian's 777s are named after African landmarks, highlighting ET's PR-theme "The New Spirit of Africa".

CEO Tewolde Gebremariam said: "The B777-300 ER will be the biggest aircraft in our fleet. Its introduction marks another big milestone in the history of the airline, which has always been and remains an aviation technology leader in Africa. Ethiopian B777-300 ERs will give our passengers exceptional on-board comfort and enhanced travel experience with its spacious cabin interior, high ceiling, advanced in-flight entertainment system, increased stowage capability and additional cargo uplift flexibility. With its long range capability and fuel efficiency, the aircraft will be instrumental in supporting our fast growth in our non-stop long haul routes in China and the Americas." (ET website)
