TORONTO — Ethiopian Airlines’ new Airbus A350, named ‘Toronto’, will make its debut on Nov. 10 at Toronto Pearson International airport.
Ethiopian Airlines flies direct from Toronto to Addis Ababa five times weekly.
“We’re excited about the arrival of our Airbus 350 to Toronto, a city where we have been flying direct now for over seven years,” said Samson Arega, Ethiopian Airlines Canada country manager. “Canada is a very important market for us, and we are committed to providing our customers with the ultimate travel experience.”
Star Alliance member Ethiopian Airlines is currently the only African operator of the Airbus, he added.
The aircraft features inflight WiFi and seats fitted with the latest high-definition touchscreen personal monitors and a higher selection of movies, television series and audio channels.
Arega says the A350XWB’s innovative technology also improves performance in operation, making for a 25% reduction in fuel burn and emissions in addition to significantly lower maintenance costs.
