African-based airline revealed for more Boeing 777Fs

An order for more of Boeing’s popular 777F widebody freighter was unveiled today (May 25). Find out more…

The airline in question is Ethiopian Airlines, now identified to have commitments for a further five examples of the Boeing 777F – which features a maximum structural payload of 107 tonnes and a 4,970nm range – in a move, the airline says, will help it to “meet the growing demand in our cargo operation”.

According to the Arlington, Virginia-based aircraft manufacturer, the order is, at present, shown as “unidentified” on its orders and deliveries website.

Currently, Ethiopian Airlines boasts a nine-strong inventory of the 777F. The very first example of the type delivered to the Addis Ababa-based firm was ET-APS (c/n 41846) – named The Renaissance Dam – back in September 2012. This was a proud moment for the company after it became Africa’s first carrier to operate a 777F.
