Air Algérie (AH, Algier Houari Boumediene (ALG)) is believed to be interested in acquiring two MD-11(F)s ET-AML (msn 48758) and ET-AND (msn 48780) from Ethiopian Airlines (ET, Addis Ababa Bole International (ADD)) for use in its growing Cargo & Freight division. In addition, the Algerian operator has confirmed plans to acquire seven B737-800s and seven B787-8s having recently issued a multi-billion dollar tender for the acquisition of new aircraft, though no official confirmation has been received from Ethiopian. The aircraft acquisition forms part of a fleet renewal scheme as described in the airline's business turnaround plan.

Air Algérie (AH, Algier Houari Boumediene (ALG)) has tendered for the purchase of 14 passenger aircraft - eight 150-seat, three 250-seat and three 70-seat passenger planes - and two 13-20 tonne-capacity cargo jets, as part of its fleet renewal plans.
