Ethiopian’s second B787-9 makes its debut flight to Beijing


1 min read

Ethiopian Airlines’ second B787-9 aircraft named after the Chinese capital city Beijing, has made its maiden commercial flight to Beijing.

On-board the new Ethiopian fleet, passengers enjoy its unique features such as the biggest windows in the sky, high ceilings, less noise, distinctive lighting, and higher air humidity at 40 000 feet.

Ethiopian is among the veteran carriers that started serving the People’s Republic of China back in the early 1970’s, which has translated into a flourishing commercial and bilateral cooperation between the continent of Africa and China. Currently Ethiopian operates 30 weekly scheduled flights through its five gateways in China: Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Chengdu.

Ethiopian is supporting China’s Belt and Road Initiative with its extensive and convenient network of passenger and cargo connectivity in Africa, Middle East, Asia and Europe.
