Boeing’s (Chicago) 787 Dreamliner touched down in Ethiopia ‘s capital today (December 11) to kick off the Africa portion of Boeing’s 787 Dream Tour – a six-month worldwide tour featuring the Dreamliner. This is the first time the Dreamliner has visited the African continent.
The Dream Tour airplane will be in Addis Ababa , the capital of Ethiopia and home to Ethiopian Airlines, December 11-14 before it travels to Nairobi, Kenya. During the four-day stop, Ethiopian Airlines executives and employees, government officials and other guests will have a chance to view the airplane, including the interior.
The airplane, ZA003, was originally used for flight testing but has been elegantly refurbished to showcase the standard capabilities and features of the 787 including an interior that highlights the many passenger-preferred features of the airplane.
