Ethiopian Airlines, which already operates a fleet of 20 Airbus A350-900s, has decided to take eleven more as part of a memorandum of understanding signed at the Dubai Airshow.

11 more Airbus A350-900s for Ethiopian Airlines

Already operating a fleet of 20 Airbus A350-900s including two leased aircraft, Ethiopian Airlines clearly still has needs since the airline signed a memorandum of understanding during the Dubai Airshow for 11 more A350-900s. Here again, no public details on the delivery schedules for these long-haul aircraft, a point in common with the announcements made by Boeing. Ethiopian Airlines is also a customer of the Airbus A350-1000, with four firm orders.

Cabin layout for 343 passengers

The airline has chosen a cabin layout for a total of 343 passengers divided into two classes, i.e. 30 sleeper seats in Business class and 313 seats in Economy class. Air Mauritius also has a two-class configuration but with lower density: 28 berth chairs and 298 seats in Economy class.
