ETHIOPIAN RETAINS GLOBAL RELIABILITY LEADERSHIP AWARD FOR THE 7TH YEAR RUNNING
(Posted 01st June 2018)
Ethiopian Airlines currently operates 21 Q400NextGen aircraft and has only recently signed purchase agreements for yet more of this aircraft type. The Q400 proved an ideal aircraft for domestic and regional flights with a speed closer to narrow body jet airplanes than any other turboprop aircraft currently in use in Africa. Ethiopian’s Q400s are used for the airline’s extensive regional and domestic network serving the ever increasing travel needs of its customers.
The Airline Reliability Performance Award recognizes operators of Bombardier CRJ Series regional jets and Q Series turboprops who have achieved the highest rates of dispatch reliability.
Mr. Tewolde Gebremariam, CEO of Ethiopian Airlines said, “We are pleased to receive the award for the 7th year in a row. It is the fruit of continued dedication and hard work of our employees, and especially those working in our light aircraft and turbo-prop section. We are committed to providing our esteemed customers with a reliable schedule and punctual flights at all times. This is a testament of our dedication to operational excellence in our domestic and regional routes.”
