Africa, for the fifth consecutive year. The award underscores the continuous efforts and
hard work of Ethiopian employees who are striving day and night to surpass
customers‟ expectations. Ethiopian is also grateful to its loyal customers for giving us
the opportunity to serve them, for travelling on Ethiopian in great numbers, for their
continued feedback and support which, in turn, assisted us in enhancing the airline’s
service excellence.

growth is primarily benefiting non-African carriers. I would like to remind fellow
African Airlines that African aviation holds a very strong future with vigorous
fundamentals for aviation to thrive, only if, we Africans look inwards in the continent
to leverage on the available internal resources to create synergy through collaborative
partnerships in areas of training, technical and management support. Most of all,
realizing one single unified market without any restriction for African airlines is no
more an option.”
