Ethiopian B787 lands at Lagos Airport
Ethiopian Airlines first B787-8 Dreamliner touched down at Lagos Airport yesterday as part of its African introduction tour. The aircraft will also operate today’s return flight between Addis Ababa and Lagos and tomorrow’s return flight between Addis Ababa and Abuja.
Earlier this week, United Airlines announced that it will operate its five-weekly Houston-Lagos service with a B787 per 7 January 2012.
Arik Air has seven B787-9s on order from Boeing, but it will take a couple of years before they will be built. Some months ago, Air Nigeria announced it would purchase four B787-8s, but it’s highly unlikely that the airline will realise this acquisition.
