Africa’s First Airbus A350 to Go Green for St. Patrick’s Day
Africa’s largest airline group, Ethiopian Airlines, has announced that it will be part of this year's annual Global Greening initiative of St. Patrick’s Day on March 17, 2017.
As part of the "Greenification of the World" campaign, launched by the Irish Tourism Board eight years ago, Africa’s first Ethiopian A350 will join a string of world landmarks in this campaign, including New York’s World Trade Center, City Hall and Heron Tower in London, Plaça de Catalunya and the fountains on Gran Via in Barcelona, Pozzo di San Patrizio in Italy, Matsue Castle in Japan and the Diamond Bridge in South Korea.
The A350 XWB is one of the most comfortable, technologically innovative and fuel-efficient aircraft in the market today, providing exceptional levels of luxury and reliability combined with the latest technology for a totally unique passenger experience.
The A350 is Ethiopian Airlines' latest and game changing aircraft and is among the notable landmarks in Ethiopian 70-year history, with which Ethiopian has pioneered the extra effect to the African continent.
The Axum Obelisks, symbol of the wealth and civilization of the ancient Ethiopian Axumite Kingdom, were turned green back in 2015. Ethiopian Airlines launched the first and only direct air route linking Africa with Ireland in 2015.
