Ethiopian Airlines first to resume Dreamliner flights

- +

Ethiopian Airlines on Saturday became the first carrier to resume flying the Boeing 787 Dreamliners that have been grounded worldwide since January due to battery problems. 

Passengers board an Ethiopian Airlines Dreamliner jet ahead of its take-off on April 27, 2013, at Addis Ababa's Bole International Airport. The airline became the first carrier to resume flying the Boeing 787 Dreamliners that have been grounded worldwide for the past three months due to battery problems.

The Ethiopian carrier flew one of the next-generation aircraft from Addis Ababa to Nairobi, a day before All Nippon Airlines (ANA), which has the world's largest fleet of Dreamliners, is set to conduct a test flight in Japan.
