Recently, Ethiopian Airlines made the first again with the arrival of the newest aircraft in the world Airbus A350 in Nigeria. Lagos and Dubai are the first stations to receive Ethiopian Airlines Brand new Baby.
Ethiopian Airlines were also the first to bring Boeing B787 Dreamliner to Africa and Lagos.
However, Ethiopian Airlines has become the first airline in Africa to take delivery of Airbus A350XWB on June 28, 2016, in Toulouse, France.
Ethiopian is proud to be the first airline from Africa to take delivery of the A350 and excel in offering its passengers the ultimate travel experience on-board this aircraft ahead of other carriers.
Ethiopian A350 XWB was built for passengers comfort and well-being. Wider seats in both Business and Economy classes, the lowest twin engine noise level, advanced air conditioning technology and full LED mood lighting enhance passenger comfort while reducing fatigue after a long flight.
“The fact that we are ushering in another first to Africa in a span of four years is an affirmation of our continuing pioneering role in African aviation. It is also a testimony of our commitment to give our passengers the very best travel experience, with the latest industry products and services.
On behalf of all my colleagues at the Ethiopian family, I am delighted to see Ethiopia to continue making Africa first in Aviation Technology,” said Ato Tewolde Gebremariam, Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines.
“All seats of the A350 XWB are fitted with the latest high-definition touchscreen personal monitors and a higher selection of movies, television series and audio channels. Inflight Wi-Fi connection will be made available on this aircraft in the future.
“Passengers with smart devices can connect to the world while others can use the smart individual touch screens on their seats when the internet service goes operational.
The A350 XWB’s innovative technology also improves performance in operation.’’
