Ethiopian Airlines strengthens its fleet with the incorporation of new Airbus aircraft. These are four A350-1000 type aircraft that will enable the Ethiopian company to intensify its operations on several new international routes, and others that already exist.
The new aircraft are added to the A340s already integrating the Ethiopian Airlines fleet, configured to accommodate more than three hundred passengers in two cabins.
