Despite its humble beginnings, Ethiopian Airlines (Ethiopian) has had more than 75 years of successful journey which made it the leading Aviation Group in Africa. Of course, Ethiopian is ageing beautifully. Over the decades, the airline has established itself as the leader in all facets of the aviation business: technology leadership, network expansion and aviation mentoring. Ethiopian started its operation with five C-47 aircrafts back in 1946 and made its debut fight to Cairo via Asmara. Ever since, it has been growing in leaps and bounds, and continued to introduce cutting-edge aviation technology and systems. As aviation technology leader, Ethiopian was a pioneer in ushering in new aviation technology into Africa including the first jet airplane as well as the first B767, B777-200LR, B787 Dreamliner, and787-9 in the continent. Ethiopian also led the way in operating Africa’s first Airbus A350 XWB. Currently, the airline has a fleet of more than 141 modern aircraft with average fleet age of five years; it also has 37 ultramodern aircraft on order. Living its motto of Bringing Africa Together and Beyond, Ethiopian has created Africa-wide and transcontinental air connectivity networks linking its main hub Addis Ababa to the rest of the world. The airline serves 131 international passenger and cargo destinations, including 63 African cities, with daily and multiple flights with a minimum layover in Addis. As a veteran carrier serving a vast intra-African network, Ethiopian flies to more destinations in the continent than any other airline. Having met its 15-year strategic plan, Vision 2025, ahead of time, Ethiopian has charted out a more ambitious strategic roadmap called Vision 2035 to further bolster its continuous growth. In December 2011, Ethiopian took a giant leap forward in its successful journey by joining Star Alliance, the world’s largest airline network. Over the years, the multi-award-winning airline has received countless coveted accolades and recognitions for its excellence, including Skytrax’s Four-Star Airline Certification and Best Airline in Africa title for 5 consecutive years, and Overall Excellence for Outstanding Crisis Leadership Award in 2020 to mention but a few. Building on its continuous success, Ethiopian has achieved an average growth rate of 25 percent in the seven years prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
