Ethiopian Airlines is expanding its extensive freighter fleet with an order for four Boeing 777 freighters in a deal valued at more than $1.3bn at list prices. The deal includes a new order for two freighters. It also includes two freighters the major African airline announced as a commitment in June, which became a firm order this month. Ethiopian Cargo is the largest network cargo operator in Africa with six B777 and two B757 Freighters serving 39 cargo destinations in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Europe. Ethiopian Cargo opened a state-of-the-art cargo terminal in June 2017 that gives the carrier an annual capacity of one million tons.
