Ethiopian Airlines (Addis Ababa) has been a loyal Boeing customer but it has now turned to both Airbus and Boeing for new aircraft. The flag carrier signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for 12 A350-900s with deliveries starting in 2017. The company also signed a firm contract for five 777-200 LRs (Longer Range) airliners becoming the first first LR operator in Africa. The first delivery will be in October 2010. The airline also has five 787 Dreamliners on order.
