Ethiopian Airlines celebrates its 70 years in air transport services

Ethiopian Airlines celebrated its 70 years of dedicated and highly successful air transport services to, from and within the continent of Africa on April 8, 2016. Parallely, the airline also crossed a milestone in India with 45 years of operations from Mumbai and 30 years from Delhi. Recently the airline also announced the launch of its double daily flights from Delhi.

With its strong mission of bringing Africa together and closer to the world, Ethiopian has expanded much needed air connectivity within Africa and with the rest of the world in the last 70 years. Leading the way in the past, present and the future; Ethiopian has been an aviation technology leader in Africa and has introduced many new aircraft and systems to the continent.

The result of such a long journey of dedicated service has now culminated in connecting 51 cities in Africa with the major trading centers of the world in five continents and 41 cities around the world.

Group Chief Executive Officer, Tewolde Gebremariam, said “Seventy years is a long time, but Ethiopian is still young, strong, forward looking and ready to contribute its own share of an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the global arena in line with the African Union agenda 2063.”

Along with Star Alliance partners, Ethiopian Airlines covers the entire world. We operate Africa’s largest cargo service, largest and most advanced Aviation Academy and best MRO services. “The billions of dollars we invested in our modern fleet, aviation infrastructure, human resource development and operating systems are a testimony that shows Ethiopian is positioned in a solid foundation to scale up the growth in its Vision 2025. With the next generation advanced fleet of B-787 Dreamliners, Airbus A-350 and the B-737 MAX, we are very excited to continue to lead the 21st century aviation development in the continent of Africa.”

Ethiopian Airlines, Regional Director India Sub Continent, Tadesse Tilahun, said, “Seventy years is a long time for the airline that was conceptualized in the year 1946. However, 20 years later in 1966 it commenced operation into Delhi and India has always been one of its focused markets. The Airline is operating into Mumbai from the year 1971 and we are highly excited as Ethiopian Airline’s 70th Anniversary has coincided with 30th and 45th years of Delhi and Mumbai operations respectively.”
