Ethiopian takes delivery of second A350

Ethiopian Airlines has received its second Airbus A350 XWB, which arrived at Addis Ababa Bole International Airport on 16 August. Since 30 June, Africa’s first Ethiopian A350, named Simien Mountains, has been flying to various African destinations, the Middle East, and recently to London. Passengers can now enjoy the latest high-definition touchscreen personal monitors with a higher selection of movies, television series and audio channels. They will also enjoy the wider seats and windows, the lowest twin-engine noise level, advanced air-conditioning technology and full LED mood lighting, which enhance comfort and reduce jet-lag after a long flight. Ethiopian has 12 remaining orders of the A350, which are expected to be delivered within this fiscal year. This latest addition increases the airline’s fleet to 80.
