Ethiopian Airlines (Ethiopian) is the leading and most profitable airline in Africa. In 2014 IATA ranked Ethiopian as the largest airline in Africa in revenue and profit. Over the past seven decades, Ethiopian has been a pioneer of African aviation as an aircraft technology leader. Ethiopian provided the first jet service in the continent in 1962, the first African B787 Dreamliner in 2012 and is leading the way again by providing the first African A350 XWB.
Ethiopian joined Star Alliance, the world’s largest Airline network, in December 2011. Ethiopian is currently implementing a 15-year strategic plan called Vision 2025 that will see it become the leading airline group in Africa with seven strategic business units. Ethiopian is a multi-awardwinning airline, including SKYTRAX and Passenger Choice Awards in 2015, and has been registering an average growth of 25% per annum for the past ten years.
