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.
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.
