Regarding the awards, Tewolde GebreMariam, group CEO, Ethiopian Airlines, remarked, “We are honored to have received the African Cargo Airline of the Year and Air Cargo Brand of the Year in Africa awards which are testimony to the leading role Ethiopian is playing in air cargo service in Africa. In line with Vision 2025, we have been investing heavily in expanding our cargo services, building the largest trans-shipment terminal in Africa with an annual capacity of about one million tons and deploying nine dedicated freighters. Our cargo services today span across 44 international destinations in Africa, the Gulf, Middle East, Asia, the Americas and Europe, augmenting the export of perishables from Africa and import of high value goods. I would like to extend my gratitude to Air Cargo Africa for recognizing our efforts with these awards, and I’d like to congratulate my 16,000 plus colleagues at Ethiopian Airlines on the success they achieved through their dedication and hard work.”
