Ethiopian Airlines was awarded for its excellence at the recent Africa CEO Forum, hosted in Rwanda. Ethiopian Airlines won “African Champion of the Year”.
The win comes after Ethiopian Airlines has been under great scrutiny following the crash of flight ET302 on the 10th of March 2019. The win was seen by many as a vote of confidence for the airline, which has survived an onslaught of negative headlines in the media.
In his acceptance speech, the Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde Gebremariam, thanked Africans for their strong vote of confidence “even in the most challenging, trying and testing time”. Gebremariam offered his sincere and deep condolences to the families of the victims who lost their lives in the tragic accident that took place two weeks ago.
Every year, the Africa CEO Forum celebrates the best of African business.
