Regarding the all-women functioned flight, Tewolde GebreMariam, CEO, Ethiopian Group, remarked, “Ethiopian firmly believes that such remarkable flights inspire African women and young girls to dream big and realise their dreams not only in aviation, but also in science, technology, engineering, art and other fields. While we celebrate the economic, social and political achievements of women in Africa, we take a bold move towards further championing gender equality in Ethiopia and Africa at large.”
