Africa’s biggest national carrier, Ethiopia Airlines, has announced its launch of on-board broadband internet service on its A350 fleets.
“With the state-of-the-art broadband satellite technology, passengers can now enjoy reliable connectivity while flying over the clouds,” the airline said. It did not specify whether the service will be free or at a cost.
The airline currently flies to over 50 African cities in what is the largest network by a national carrier. It is also in talks to help about a dozen African countries to establish and manage their carriers.
Ethiopian – a member of the Star Alliance group in its seven decades of operation has become one of the continent’s leading carriers in terms of efficiency and operational success.
