The Boeing 787 offers passengers unparalleled on-board comfort with greatly reduced noise, higher ceilings, biggest windows in the sky, higher humidity and unique lighting.

As technology leaders in the continent, we will continue to introduce the latest technology aircraft with the aim of meeting the high expectations of our valued customers." said Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Group.
