The Argentine president, Mauricio Macri, welcomed the all female Ethiopian Airlines flight to Buenos Aires. The maiden trip from the Ethiopian capital to the Argentine capital was historically underatken on the occassion of International Women’s Day. Marci believes the introduction of the five weekly flights by Ethiopian Airlines will boost tourism, sports and commercial relations for the two countries. The direct flight from Ethiopia to Buenos Aires will boost diplomatic, economic and political relations. ‘‘The direct flight from Ethiopia to Buenos Aires will boost diplomatic, economic and political relations.’‘ “Our new flight to Buenos Aires will provide efficient connections to our network in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, including Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul, Tokyo, Mumbai, Delhi, Dubai, Beirut, Nairobi, and Cairo,’‘ said Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO, Tewolde GebreMariam . President of Argentina H.E Mauricio Macri welcomed Ethiopian Airlines all women-operated flight to Buenos Aires. pic.twitter.com/VSOXhmLPvd The female pilots who flew the B787 Dreamliner to Buenos Aires lauded the warm welcome they received. It is not the first time Africa’s top flier has dispatched an all women crew. In December 2017, they made history by sending one such team on an intra-Africa trip from Addis Ababa to Lagos, and before that, in late 2015, a similar crew flew passengers from Addis Ababa to the Thai capital, Bangkok. An all-women team means the entire flight management team comprised of women: from the pilots and cabin crew to in-flight ramp operations as well as flight dispatchers on the ground. About Ethiopian Airlines They are the first operators on the continent to take delivery of the Boeing 787-9 dreamliner. The airline currently flies to over 50 African cities in what is the largest network by a national carrier. Two major decisions made recently by the carrier include switching fully to digital processes in its operations and also the provision of free Wi-Fi access for travellers using its main hub, the Bole International Airport in the capital Addis Ababa. Ethiopian – a member of the Star Alliance group in its seven decades of operation has become one of the continent’s leading carriers in terms of efficiency and operational success. They command the lion’s share of the pan-African passenger and cargo network operating the youngest and most modern fleet to 95 international destinations across five continents.
