In line with our continuous effort to provide our customers a seamless travel experience, Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircrafts has enabled us offer the best on board experience on our regional and domestic routes.

I wish to thank our Engineering team at Ethiopian MRO, Turbo Prop and Light A/C team as well as the Bombardier Field Service representatives for this notable milestone‘.
