Ethiopian Airlines wins Best Airline in Africa Award

Ethiopian Airlines has won SKYTRAX World Airline Award for the Best Airline in Africa for the second successive year.

Skytrax is the most respected global air transport-rating organisation that conducts the world’s largest annual airline passenger satisfaction survey, where customers make their own personal choices as to which airline they consider to be the best.

A statement issued in Accra by Mrs Aniley Eshetu, Assistant Manager Corporate Communication, Ethiopian Airlines, quoted Group CEO Ethiopian Airlines, Mr Tewolde GebreMariam as saying: “Ethiopian is a customer focused and market driven airline. In a context of hyper competitive global airline industry, the only way for Ethiopian to sustain its success is through its differentiated service delivery and by meeting its customers' expectations”.

He said, "We are, therefore, honoured and delighted to have been named the Best Airline in Africa at SKYTRAX World Airline Award as voted by passengers and we will not relent in our continuous efforts to offer our customers the best possible travel experience."

Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam expressed gratitude to Skytrax for the recognition and customers for their strong vote of confidence.

"As always, we shall maintain our resolve to exceed their expectations and provide the best possible travel experience every time they fly with us. I wish to take this opportunity to congratulate my colleagues at Ethiopian for their exceptional commitment and hard work to keep our airline flying high in the skies,” he added.

Mr Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax said, "Passengers have voted Ethiopian Airlines Africa's premier carrier for a second successive year and this is a simply fabulous achievement for the airline management and frontline staff."

Ethiopian Airlines is a multi-award winning airline and has previously received SKYTRAX World Airline Award for Best Airline Staff in Africa, two times.
