New Airbus A350 lands at Abuja airport to mark its reopening

Published on : Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Airbus A350Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, the Nigerian capital, will re-open for traffic officially today. But it received a brand new Airbus A350-900 yesterday which marked the re-opening.


The airline launched its first A350-900 Airbus on the Addis-London route in August last year and now has three of the planes in its fleet while awaiting the delivery of nine more before 2019, airline’s Traffic and Sales Manager, Firiehiwot Mekonnen, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).


She added that the decision to celebrate the inaugural flight to Abuja was because of the airline’s commitment to the Nigerian market.


When Abuja Airport was closed from March 8 for repairs to be carried out on its runway and flight operations were diverted to Kaduna International Airport, Ethiopian Airlines was the first to land its new Boeing 787 in Kaduna. The airline, being the only international carrier which agreed to operate at Kaduna, maintained consistent operations at the airport in the last six weeks.
