Ethiopian Airlines first B737 MAX8

Ethiopian Airlines  has taken over its first of thirty B737 MAX 8s on order from Boeing.  Flightradar24 ADS-B data shows ET-AVM  was positioned from Seattle Boeing Field to Addis Ababa via Dublin Int’l over the course of July 1/2.

Ethiopian currently operates four B737-700s and fifteen B737-800s on domestic as well as short- and medium-haul flights throughout Africa, the Middle East, and India.

As previously noted, the carrier has also been contemplating an order for smaller regional jets with both the C-Series and the EMB-195 E2 in competition. Airline CEO Tewolde Gebremariam has hinted in several recent reports that an order could be announced during this month’s Farnborough Airshow.
