Ethiopian Airlines received the first of its five re-configured Bombardier Q-400 aircraft on September 28th, 2012 in Toronto, Canada. Based on customer’s feedback, the Airline requested that the manufacturer reconfigure the new Q-400, making Ethiopian the first airline to receive the new aircraft.
The Airline that recently became a member of Star Alliance and winner of gold in the African Airline of the Year Awards stated that the new aircraft contains several innovations that will greatly enhance passenger comfort.
The new perks include reclining seats in economy class and a galley for the providing of hot meals on regional flights as well as more buggage capacity and extra overhead compartment space, whereas the previous Q-400 aircraft did not have these features. The airline also stated that the new aircraft is ideal for domestic and regional flights with cruise speeds closer to narrow- body jet airplanes and with reduced fuel consumption and exhaust gas emission.
“Now our Cloud 9 customers can enjoy a full-fledged Business Class service, and our connecting passengers from Ethiopian and Star Alliance will benefit from a greatly improved product, in line with our continuous effort to provide a seamless travel experience,” stated Tewolde Gebremariam, Chief Executive Officer of the Airline.
All five re-configured Q-400s will be delivered to Ethiopian before the end of this year. The airline also plans to re-configure the Q-400s already in its fleet. The Airline became only the second country next to Japan to have a Dreamliner and received its second Boeing 787 Dreamliner on October 5th, 2012.
The airline stated that with its acquisition of and firm orders for several new modern aircraft, the airline is well positioned to pursue, aggressively, the implementation of its 2025 strategic plan to become the leading aviation group in Africa.
