Ethiopian Airlines commends Ghanaians for support

The Management of Ethiopian Airlines in Ghana has commended government and Ghanaians for the support it has received during a period of pain.

Genet Michael, the General Manager of the airline in Ghana said she appreciates the warmth and empathy the Airline has received from Ghanaians who have supported them over the years.

"I have felt the traditional Ghanaian hospitality and love a lot during this moment of grief. I am really grateful to the good people of Ghana.

“Ghana has been one of our strong partners in Africa and we have served the market with the New Airbus A350 for the past year and do promise to always stand by Ghana as they have stood with us," she said in a release Wednesday.

President of Ghana Nana Akuffo Addo was among the first world leaders to send a message of condolence to Ethiopians after Sunday’s crash of the B737-8 Max.

No Ghanaian was involved in the fatal crash.

According to the Ethiopian Airline boss, after the crash, they have grounded all B737-8 Max in their fleet until further notice.

Ethiopian Airlines has been operating in Ghana since 1960 and has been serving the Ghanaian route with the B787 Dreamliner and now uses the Airbus A350.
