The airline, which operates Africa's largest cargo terminal from its Addis Ababa hub, currently has nine 777 freighters. Its fleet also includes three 737-800 converted freighters.

Boeing had disclosed an order for five freighters from an unnamed customer in its monthly report in March. Reuters subsequently reported that Ethiopian had ordered the planes to meet near-term cargo demand.
