Ethiopian Airlines has concluded a lease agreement with Air Lease Corporation (ALC) on two new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft for a period of 12 years.

The aircraft will be delivered in May and June 2015.

Ethiopian's chief executive Tewolde Gebremariam says the aircraft are "critical for our rapidly expanding non-stop long haul routes".

"The introduction of these two new Boeing 777s into our young and modern fleet is part of our continuing commitment to afford our customers the best possible on-board long haul experience," he adds.

ALC's senior vice president Kishore Korde says: "These aircraft will enhance their intercontinental operations with leading fuel efficiency and a premier passenger experience."
