DUBAI (Reuters) – Ethiopian Airlines <BA.N> would be interested in around 10 to 20 mid-sized jets that Boeing <BA.N> is studying possibly developing, the African airline’s chief executive said on Tuesday. Ethiopian also ordered two Boeing 777 Freighters, and exercised options for two more, Chief Executive Tewolde Gebremariam said at a Dubai Airshow press conference. Industry sources have said they expect a commercial launch of the roughly 220 to 270 seat jet next year. It would enter service in 2024 or 2025 as Boeing attempts to leapfrog the hot-selling Airbus <AIR.PA> A321neo.
