Ahead of the official reopening of the Abuja Airport tomorrow, Ethiopian Airlines has decided to launch the reopening of the Airport with its latest technology Airbus A350-900 aircraft.
The state of the art aircraft today started the scheduled service on the Addis Ababa Abuja route, thereby gracing the reopening of Abuja Airport.
The aircraft was welcomed with the traditional water canon salute after it touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport by 12:21pm today following a 4h 58m flight from Addis Ababa.
Ethiopian Airlines and other carriers had on March 8, 2017 commenced operations into the Kaduna Airport as an alternative while the Nigerian government closed Abuja Airport for runway repairs.
The Airbus A350 is yet one of the landmarks in Ethiopian Airlines' 70 years proud history, providing exceptional levels of luxury and reliability for a totally unique passenger experience.
Passengers will enjoy the amazing A350 features including the latest high-definition touchscreen, personal monitors with a higher selection of movies, wider seats, lowest twin engine noise level, advanced air conditioning technology and full LED mood lighting.
It is to be recalled that Ethiopian is the first airline in Africa to own and operate the A350 in African skies. Ethiopian currently has three of them in operation with 11 more to join their fleet.
