The Ethiopian Airlines Group has ordered for A350-1000 aircraft from Airbus. The deal is an upsizing of a previous agreement between the two companies for 22 A350-900 aircraft. Sixteen of these have already been delivered. Four of the remaining will be replaced with the A350-1000 models. The flag carrier operates 18 -900s, two of which are are leased from Aercap. "The A359-1000 is the best fit for our dense routes, and we believe that the upsizing will be instrumental in satisfying the increasing demand of customers," said Mesfin Tasew, chief executive officer of Ethiopian Airlines. The Group is among over two dozen of the country's state-owned enterprises to come under the Ethiopian Investment Holdings (EIH) earlier this year. Others under the holding company include Ethio telecom and the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE).
