Ethiopian Airlines placed a firm order for four Boeing 777 Freighters at the Dubai Airshow Tuesday. Appearing at the show with Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Kevin McAllister, Ethiopian Airlines group CEO Tewolde GebreMariam told reporters that he expected growth “tailwinds” will continue for his airline. Ethiopian Cargo ranks as the largest network cargo operator in Africa, flying six 777 and two 757 Freighters to 39 destinations in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Europe. Ethiopian Cargo opened a new cargo terminal in June that gives the carrier an annual capacity of one million tons. For Boeing, the order pushes 777 net orders this year to 57, including 37 current-generation 777s.
