Ethiopian Airlines, which has four Dreamliners, became the first carrier in the World to resume the Boeing 787 Dreamliner that has been grounded worldwide since January.
“I am very happy to see the airplane is back to the air now and I am very happy also we are the first one," Ethiopian Airlines CEO, Tewolde Gebremariam told journalists ahead of take-off. "This is the first airplane which has completed the work," he told reporters, adding that work has started on the company's other three 787 Dreamliners.

Ethiopian Airlines has four Dreamliners, which Tewolde said would all resume service in the coming weeks after being retrofitted with new batteries.
