May 16, 2018
Ethiopian Airways has announced that it plans to buy new regional jets in the next month or so as it prepares to relaunch Zambia Airways.
According to Chief Executive Officer Tewolde GebreMariam, the airline has narrowed its choice to Bombardier Inc.'s C Series and Embraer SA's E2-family E195.
Mr GebreMariam said Boeing Co.'s 737 Max 7 is now out of the running for the contract, which could feature 10 firm orders and the same number of options.
He said there are no more pressing fleet requirements, though the airline could decide to add more Boeing 787 Dreamliners and Airbus SE A350s.
