Ethiopian Airlines has taken delivery of its 18th Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft in a ceremony at Boeing's Seattle Delivery Center, Washington, USA.


The aircraft which is named Mother Teresa, who is always remembered as an icon of philanthropy, left Seattle with 6.5 tons of humanitarian aids for St. Paul’s Hospital and Bihar Dar University College of Medicine & Health Sciences, Ethiopia.


The humanitarian aids were made possible by Ethiopian Airlines, Boeing, Conscience International (CI), Horn of Africa Neonatal Development Services and Seattle Alliance Outreach (SAO) NGOs.


According to its CEO, Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam, Ethiopian Airlines will continue to contribute to the socio-economic development of Ethiopia by relentlessly delivering on its corporate social responsibilities.

Currently, Ethiopian has 18 B787 in operation, deployed on its long haul passenger routes, and will receive the 19th by the end of this month, ferrying medical equipment and supplies for St. Paul’s Hospital.
