The humanitarian shipment is loaded on Ethiopian’s 18th B787 at Seattle

Ethiopian Airlines has flown 6.5 tons of humanitarian relief cargo from Seattle to Ethiopia on behalf of Conscience International (CI), Horn of Africa Neonatal Development Services and Seattle Alliance Outreach (SAO).

The carrier picked up the shipment, bound for St Paul’s Hospital and Bahir Dar University College of Medicine & Health Sciences, when it took delivery of another Boeing 787 aircraft – its 18th – from the Seattle-based manufacturer, as part of its fleet modernisation programme.

Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO Tewolde GebreMariam commented: “This round of our humanitarian delivery is a continuation of our commendable collaboration with Boeing that has served as a source of vital service for our community and neighbouring countries as well.”

The carrier’s 19th B787 is due for delivery by the end of this month (June) and will carry medical equipment and supplies for St Paul’s Hospital.
