Ethiopian adds fourth B777 freighter

Ethiopian Airlines’ fleet expansion continues, with Africa’s largest cargo operator taking delivery of its fourth B777-200LR freighter last week.

The acquisition of the latest pair of 777 freighters (the third was delivered last month) has been financed in part through a $41.4m loan from ING Capital.

The arrival of a new generation freighter will add further capacity and flexibility to a route network that serves 24 destinations in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Europe. Ethiopian is still the only African operator of the 777 freighter.
