The Ethiopian Aviation Academy has graduated 107 cabin crew and catering professionals after pursuing various courses in the sector.
The graduates add to the over 1500 aviation professionals who graduated in 2016 from the Academy, which is one of the largest aviation training facilities in Africa.
Mr Tewolde GebreMariam, Group Chief Executive of Ethiopian Airlines, after presenting diplomas and awards to the graduating students, said: “Ethiopia has managed to march ahead of today’s stiff global airline industry competition, and remain strong and profitable over the past decades due to the exceptional commitment and proficiency of its employees.”
He encouraged the graduating students to carry on with the transcendent corporate culture and work ethic, and sustain the airlines’ legacy of quality service and safety.
“Ethiopian technology leadership, owning the largest and most modern In-flight Catering Centre in Africa, and operating the youngest and most modern fleet in the industry, will clearly enhance your professional competence and make you ready for the next African aviation development,” he told the new professionals.
Since its inception in 1956, Ethiopian Aviation Academy has graduated aviation professionals including pilots, aircraft technicians, cabin crew, marketing, catering professionals, in multiple skills and other capacities such as ground operations and management.
