Ethiopian Airlines Reviews

Ethiopian Airlines formerly Ethiopian Air Lines and often referred to as simply Ethiopian, is Ethiopia’s flag carrier and is wholly owned by the country’s government. Ethiopian Air Lines, was founded on 21 December 1945 and commenced operations on 8 April 1946 expanding to international flights in 1951. The firm became a share company in 1965, and changed its name from Ethiopian Air Lines to Ethiopian Airlines. Ethiopian is a member of the International Air Transport Association, and, since 1968, of the African Airlines Association (AFRAA). The airline is a Star Alliance member since December 2011.

Its hub and headquarters are at Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa, rom where it serves a network of 80 passenger destinations —16 of them domestic— and 17 freighter ones. Ethiopian flies to more destinations in Africa than any other carrier. It is one of the fastest-growing companies in the industry, and is among the largest on the African continent. It is also one of the few profitable airlines in the Sub-Saharan region. Ethiopian Airlines passengers are offered two lounges at Bole International Airport. Cloud Nine passengers can wait for the departure of flights at the Cloud Nine Lounge, where they are provided with a wide variety of amenities, as well as personal computers or wireless connection. Likewise, ShebaMiles cardholders with Gold or Silver status can make use of the Sheba Miles Lounge facilities. Customer Service agents are available at both lounges in order to assist passengers with any query regarding their flights.

The airline’s cargo division was awarded The African Cargo Airline of the Year in early 2011.
