Ethiopian Airlines and Boeing Celebrate 10th Anniversary of Africa’s First 787


Ethiopian Airlines and Boeing today celebrated the 10th anniversary of the first Boeing 787 Dreamliner delivery to the African carrier.


Over the past decade, Ethiopian Airlines has utilized the outstanding capabilities of the 787 to sustainably grow its long￾haul network across the world, making its hub in Addis Ababa one of the leading gateways for international travel in Africa.

Ethiopian Airlines was the first airline on the continent to take delivery of the 787 and today operates a combined fleet of 27 Boeing 787-8s and 787-9s that play an integral role in its long-haul fleet.


As part of today’s anniversary celebrations, Boeing also unveiled an exhibition design for educational exhibits in the mobility hall of the Ethiopian Science Museum. The museum will feature permanent exhibits from Boeing and Ethiopian Airlines, including a 787 Dreamliner simulator experience.

“We are glad to mark a decade since we ushered in the first 787 Dreamliner into Africa, building on our pioneering role in African aviation,” said Mesfin Tasew, Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO. “The 787 has been instrumental in expanding our long and medium haul flights and redefining on-board comfort for our passengers thanks to its advanced technology and remarkable cabin features.”

Since the delivery of the first 787 in 2011, more than 80 airlines around the world have used the Dreamliner to open more than 335 new non-stop connections around the world.


The 787 family, has served on more than 1,900 routes, carrying nearly 700 million passengers on more than 3.3 million flights.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
