Inside Ethiopian Airlines’ Cloud Nine


Discover The Ultimate Business Class Experience

Welcome aboard Ethiopian Airlines Business Class, where you can indulge in luxury and exclusivity. Let’s take a journey through the captivating features of Cloud Nine, the airline’s premium cabin, inspired by the rich culture and traditions of Ethiopia.

As you step into the world of Cloud Nine, priority check-in and security lines await you at most airports. While the origination or transit experience at Addis Ababa might not be ideal, Ethiopian Airlines compensates with personalized service. For short connections, they meet Business Class passengers at the aircraft and escort them to their next flight. The newly opened 5,000 square meter Cloud Nine Lounge at Addis Ababa offers showers, massage services, and an array of food and beverage options. Don’t miss the famous Ethiopian coffee ceremony—a unique opportunity to savour the origins of coffee itself.

Ethiopian Airlines boasts a diverse fleet, which means you might encounter various seating configurations. Expect the unexpected—for better or worse. Most long-haul Boeing 767, 787, and Airbus A350 aircraft feature fully flat Business Class seats in a 2-2-2 layout. On Boeing 777 aircraft, you’ll find a 2-3-2 configuration. Whether you’re flying solo or with a companion, Cloud Nine ensures a comfortable journey.

Cloud Nine dining options celebrate both Ethiopian and international cuisine. As you settle into your seat, enjoy welcome drinks with Ethiopian Services. During the flight, choose from a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, complemented by Ethiopian ‘KOLO’ (the crunchy roasted barley) or biscuit crackers. And don’t forget the hot beverages—Ethiopian Coffee and Tea are renowned worldwide. On wide-body aircraft, relish a choice of coffee, Espresso, and Cappuccino.

No matter your destination, step into a relaxed cabin where their warm and genuine cabin crew will assist you. They’ll take your coat, serve you welcome drinks, and mark the beginning of your pleasant journey. Whether it’s a short-haul or a medium-to-long-haul flight, Cloud Nine ensures you feel special from takeoff to landing.

Cloud Nine is not only about comfort; it’s also one of the more affordable business class options. Whether you’re buying a ticket outright, paying for an upgrade, or using ShebaMiles or Star Alliance partner points, you’ll find value in this elevated travel experience.

So, next time you fly Ethiopian Airlines, elevate your journey with Cloud Nine, where every passenger is treated like a VIP.
