ADDIS ABABA – De Havilland Aircraft of Canada has delivered another Dash 8-400 aircraft to Ethiopian Airlines, with the airline reaching a milestone of 32 Dash 8-400 aircraft in its fleet.
“We’re honoured to announce the delivery of Ethiopian Airlines’ 32nd Dash 8-400 aircraft,” says De Havilland Aircraft on Saturday. “We wish flyethiopian and its strategic airline partners much ongoing success!”
Ethiopian Airlines received its 30th and 31st Dash 8-400 aircraft registration numbers ET-AXY and ET-AXZ from the Canadian planemaker earlier recently.
The delivery highlights the carrier’s confidence in the aircraft in supporting its growing network across Africa.
Its officials believe the aircraft provides the operational flexibility, performance capability, capacity and passenger comfort the airlines want.
Ethiopian is a recognized Authorized Service Facility having acquired the first Dash 8-400 simulator in Africa and just recently added a second simulator with the goal of bringing as much of its training in-house as possible.
