Ethiopia: Company Profile of Ethiopian Airlines
Even since the first flight took off to Cairo in 1946, Ethiopian Airlines has been steadily expanding its network.
Today Ethiopian’s network reaches 44 international destinations in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the USA. To support this expansion, an aggressive fleet enhancement program has been successfully carried out and the airline is acquiring 12 new aircrafts - six Boeing 767-300ERs and six Boeing 737-700s. The expansion of Ethiopian Airlines has always been in line with the very high standard of safety and reliability that the aviation industry requires. The massive investment in training (two thirds of its employees undergo some form of training every year) and technology (a stateof- the-art flight simulator and an acclaimed, internationally certified maintenance & engineering center) ensures this fundamental philosophy. Ethiopian Airlines has established one of the finest pilot & aviation maintenance training centers in Africa. Whilst it provides an unrivalled facility for its own pilots and technicians it also offers training to airline personnel from all over Africa, the Middle East and Europe.
Ethiopian Airlines today has yet taken another significant step forward in modernizing its visual image with a new logo and a new look. The fresh new look keeps faith with the past while, at the same time, announces the dawn of a new era.
