New Ethiopian Airlines Area Manager calls on Aviation Minister

The in-coming Area Manager of Ethiopian Airlines, Ms Yemesrach Alemayehu, has called on the Minister for Aviation, Mr Joseph Kofi Adda, to officially introduce himself.

She is taking over from Ms Genet W. Michael effective March, 2020.

Ms Yemesrach has worked with Ethiopian Airlines for 12 years, seven of which has been in management position.

She has a background in management and pricing and was expected to further grow the Addis Ababa-based airline’s business and brand in the country.

Mr Adda, welcomed her and expressed his preparedness to work with her to collectively grow the sector in Ghana.

He said: “My doors are always opened, let’s engage and see how we can all support the growth of the aviation sector in Ghana.”

Mr Adda commended her predecessor, Ms. Michael, who has helped grow the ET brand and business in Ghana over the last seven years.

He further commended the airline for it’s continuous investment in women who are at the heart of Ethiopian Airlines’ operations.

As an equal opportunity employer, Ethiopian creates an enabling environment for women to become the next generation aviation experts.

For instance, on March 7, 2020 the airline operated an all-women functioned flight to Washington DC, highlighting the airline’s progress in empowering African women, and the contribution of women to the socio-economic development of the continent.

Regarding the all-women functioned flight, Ethiopian Group CEO Mr Tewolde GebreMariam, said, “Ethiopian firmly believes that such remarkable flights inspire African women and young girls to dream big and realize their dreams not only in aviation, but also in science, technology, engineering, art and other fields.”

He said while they 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.”

Ethiopian Airlines operates daily flights from Accra to over 120 countries around the world via its hub in Addis Ababa.

The e-visa (online visa application) allows Ghanaian passengers to apply for visa from the comfort of their homes or offices.

Passengers with a longer stopover in Addis Ababa, can book a free city tour prior to departure.
