Ethiopian was founded in 1945 and started operating on April 8, 1946, with five DC-3 / c-47 aircraft. The airline made its maiden flight to Cairo via Asmara, opening a new chapter in the history of African aviation.
Ethiopian is the only airline connecting Greece with Sub-Saharan Africa. The airline relaunched the Addis Ababa – Athens route in late 2019, following an 18-year absence from the Athenian market. Ethiopian began its scheduled routes to Athens in April 1954.
Ethiopian over the years has received countless coveted accolades and recognitions for its excellence, including Skytrax’s Four-Star Airline Certification and Best Airline in Africa title for 5 consecutive years, and Overall Excellence for Outstanding Crisis Leadership Award in 2020.
