Ethiopian Airlines was established on December 21, 1945. As one of the pioneer African airlines, Ethiopian began operations, with DC-3/C-47 aircraft. It has now become one of Ethiopia’s major industries and an institution in Africa, operating a modern and environmental friendly fleet. It commands the lion’s share of the pan African network, including the only daily east-west flight across the continent.
Ethiopian’s network spans to Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Middle East and Asia, connecting cities across the globe. The airline is currently implementing its 15-year strategic plan called “Vision 2025” with the goal of becoming the leading aviation group in Africa. Ethiopian is proud to be a Star Alliance Member since December 2011.
