Ethiopian becomes newest member of Star Alliance




ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia – At a ceremony held at Addis Ababa’s Bole International Airport, the Star Alliance Chief Executive Board (CEB) welcomed Ethiopian Airlines​ as the Alliance’s third carrier based on the African continent.

“Today we have taken a large step forward in completing our Africa strategy,” said Jaan Albrecht, CEO of Star Alliance, “With Ethiopian Airlines now part of the Star Alliance network, we offer our customers the widest choice of flights connecting to, from, and within Africa. Moreover, Ethiopian Airlines will bring the Star Alliance customer benefits to more markets across Africa, a region of the world in which air travel is enjoying steady growth rates.”

With the addition of Ethiopian Airlines, the Star Alliance network in Africa grows to cover major commercial and political cities of the continent particularly in East, Central, and West Africa. In total, the 16 Star Alliance member carriers serving Africa offer more than 750 daily flights to over 110 destinations in 48 countries on the continent, with Addis Ababa, Cairo, and Johannesburg serving as the main hubs.

“It is another historical milestone for Ethiopian to join this most prestigious and longest-serving alliance in the world,” said Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, “This day will remain colorfully marked in our history book. It is in line with our efforts to lay a strong foundation for the airline to achieve its vision 2025 objectives.”

On a global scale, with the addition of Ethiopian Airlines, the Star Alliance network now counts 28 airlines, offering a choice of more than 21,000 daily flights to 1,290 destinations in 189 countries.

Through its Star Alliance membership, Ethiopian Airlines now offers its customers the benefits of being a member of a global airline alliance: world-wide reach via the extensive network, seamless travel, and status recognition through the frequent flyer programs.

Ethiopian Airlines ShebaMiles participants can now earn miles when flying on any Star Alliance member carrier, with the collected miles counting towards achieving ShebaMiles Silver Club or Gold Glub status. All collected miles can be redeemed for flights operated by any Star Alliance member carrier. In addition, all ShebaMiles Silver Club and Gold Club customers will receive the respective Alliance Silver and Gold benefits every time they travel on a Star Alliance member carrier.

By the same token, Ethiopian Airlines will be extending the Alliance Silver and Gold benefits to status customers from all other Star Alliance member carriers when they fly on Ethiopian Airlines.

Ethiopian Airlines will also participate in and sell the various Alliance fare products. On the corporate side, Ethiopia is an important destination for meetings and conventions. Indeed, its capital city, Addis Ababa, is often referred to as the “political capital of Africa.” This stems from the fact that the city is home to organizations such as the African Union or United Nations Economic Commission for Africa. By participating in both Star Alliance Conventions Plus and Meetings Plus, Ethiopian Airlines will now be able to offer worldwide flight connections at special rates for delegates and participants.

On the leisure side, Ethiopian Airlines will begin participating in the various Star Alliance fare products as of January 1, 2012. The airline’s African routes will be added to the offer of the Star Alliance Africa Airpass, a special fare designed for those wishing to criss-cross the continent by air.

At the same time, Ethiopian Airlines will also become part of the Star Alliance Round the World fare, opening the airline’s network for globe trotters.

Nice!





Ethiopian Airlines Head Office: Bole Airport, Addis Ababa. They for sure need a bigger head office

Fun picture with all the Star Alliance CEOs in traditional garb.



Interestingly enough, this is the first picture I've ever seen that has the Amharic on the logo at the same size with the English. Hope to see this more!

Chinese firm snags USD 100 mln contract from Ethiopian


The national flag carrier Ethiopian Airlines​ has awarded a new maintenance hangar construction project worth 100 million dollars to the Aviation Industry Corporation of China​ (AVIC) after a competitive bid, Capital has learnt.
“The maintenance hangar has been awarded to AVIC and we are talking about the financing of the project. We will finance it through loan arrangements with a Chinese bank,” Ethiopian Chief Executive Officer Tewolde GebreMariam told Capital.
The maintenance hangar the Chinese state-owned AVIC will build for Ethiopian is going to raise the number of hangars Ethiopian has to four.
According to Tewolde the hangar construction project should commence in the first quarter of 2012 with scheduled completion within 900 days from the start.
AVIC had to impress the management of Ethiopian in both technical and financial evaluations to receive the project which is part of a multimillion facility expansion projects the airliner is undertaking.
A bid inviting firms to compete for the construction of a new maintenance hangar for Ethiopian was issued in 2011 when the carrier launched the multi-million dollar expansion projects. The expansion is aimed at meeting Ethiopian’s vision 2025 that should evolve the airliner into a diversified aviation group.
Other than the 100 million dollar maintenance hangar; new headquarters, expanding the aviation academy and constructing a simulator building for different fleet types including for the Boeing 787​ aircraft are also among facilities tasked to meet the fifteen year strategic plan embarked in January, 2011 when CEO Tewolde took office.
International passenger, domestic and regional, cargo, maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO), aviation academy, and in-flight catering and ground services are the envisioned independent business units that will come under the umbrella of what will be known as The Ethiopian Group at the successful completion of vision 2025.
“The new maintenance hangar is one of the facility projects Ethiopian is undertaking in line with vision 2025. Ethiopian anticipates huge expansion, and the existing hangars cannot accommodate the anticipated growth. Ethiopian has also been targeting the growing market for third party maintenance,” said Wogayehu Terefe, Manager of Ethiopian PR and Publications, in an emailed response.
Further advancing Ethiopian aircraft and aircraft parts’ maintenance business ambitions, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has granted EASA Part 145 Approval to Ethiopian MRO.
“This approval authorizes Ethiopian MRO Division to repair airplanes and aircraft components of airlines registered under any European Union member country, and issue EASA Airworthiness Certificates,” Ethiopian said in a statement issued on December 30.
The B767 and B757 fleet line maintenance, base airframe maintenance and component maintenance are included within the scope of the approval.
“The approval enables Ethiopian Airlines to attract more Airline Customers in Africa, Middle East, and possibly Europe to use the Ethiopian MRO services for the maintenance of their aircraft and components. This is expected to bring additional revenue to the Ethiopian Aviation Group in line with Vision 2025 Strategy,” said Mesfin Tassew, Chief Operating Officer of Ethiopian.
The Ethiopian MRO worked for more than a year to align its processes with EASA Part 145 requirements. EASA had conducted a rigorous audit of the Ethiopian MRO facilities and processes, and confirmed full compliance to its standards before it issued the approval.
Ethiopian MRO is approved by Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the Federal Aviation Administration​ (FAA), and other national CAAs in the region for several decades now. This addition of EASA Approval will enable Ethiopian MRO to issue all internationally recognized maintenance certificates for airplanes and components.

Ethiopian Airlines to Launch Addis Ababa-Dammam Service


Ethiopian Airlines is launching three-times-weekly service from Addis Ababa to Dammam, the capital of Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, on February 12.

Dammam is a large metropolitan and industrial area that lies on a peninsula stretching out into the Persian Gulf. It is a major seaport, exporting and importing a wide variety of goods and commodities. It is a center for the oil and gas industry and is the commercial center for eastern Saudi Arabia.
“The new flight services to Dammam provide opportunities for business people as well as tourists to explore Dammam’s investment and leisure potentials,” says Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines.

Dammam will be Ethiopian’s eighth destination in the Middle East and its 64th worldwide.

Ethiopian Airlines’ schedule for the new service calls for flight ET422 to depart Addis Ababa’s Bole International Airport (IATA code ADD) at 10:45 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays and arrive at Dammam’s King Fahd International Airport (DMM, the largest airport in the world in terms of overall land area) at 2:30 a.m. the next morning. Addis Ababa and Dammam are in the same time zone, which is three hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time.

In the other direction, flight ET423 is timed to leave DMM at 3:30 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and touch down at ADD at 7:30 a.m.

Ethiopian Airlines says the new flight will connect Dammam to dozens of cities in Africa via the airline’s hub at Addis Ababa. The flight is timed to make convenient connections to and from cities such as Johannesburg, Nairobi, Lagos, Accra, Dar es Salaam, Entebbe and Dakar.

Ethiopian Airlines has served Saudi Arabia longer than any other country in the Middle East for Ethiopian Airlines except for Yemen. Saudi Arabia is also the only country in the region where the airline currently plans to serve three cities: Ethiopian already serves Jeddah and Riyadh.

To mark the new Addis Ababa-Dammam service, Ethiopian is offering a promotional round-trip fare on the route from the Ethiopian capital. The fare starts from US$360 and is valid for travel until November 30, 2012.

But I dont know how heavy the demand would be to go to Ethiopia from East Asia. China obviously is a good market for obvious reasons,

Well I suppose Australians can also connect from ICN.
