Ethiopian Airlines, the largest and most profitable airline in Africa, is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as “Best Airline to Africa” by one of the most prominent travel magazines in the United States, Premier Traveler, at a ceremony held on 4 December 2014 in Los Angeles, California.
Commenting on the award, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines Group, Tewolde Gebremariam, said: “We
are honored that Premier Traveler Magazine’s readers in the U.S. have selected us as the best
airline for travel to Africa.
I wish to thank them for this vote of confidence, which once again
reaffirms the quality of the service and product we offer. We currently offer the best connectivity
options for the travelling public between Africa and the US, thanks to our daily flights from
Washington D.C. using the ultra-modern B777s and B787s, and our extensive African network
covering 49 destinations with daily and more flights.
In June 2015, we will further cement our position as the airline of choice for travel between
Africa and the U.S. by adding Los Angeles as our second point in the U.S. Our flights connecting
Addis Ababa, Dublin and Los Angeles will be operated with the B787s, which offers unmatched
on-board comfort, and will be the only direct service connecting Africa with Ireland and the
West Coast of the United States.”
In August 2014 Ethiopian received the Best Airline in Africa award by Passenger Choice
Awards,the most extensive survey of passengers in the industry. TheAfrican Airlines
Association (AFRAA) also named Ethiopian African Airline of the Year at its 46th Annual
General Assembly held in Algiers in November 2014.
