Africa’s largest airline, Ethiopian, said it is welcoming back business and leisure travelers with programs aimed at safeguarding their health and safety.


According to Ethiopian, the program will reinforce Ethiopian’s pledge to protect the health and safety of its customers and staff. It includes the steps the airline is taking to maintain customer and staff well-being throughout the service chain beginning from the first interaction with customers during ticketing/reservation and up to arrival at destination.


Ato Tewolde G. Mariam, Group CEO of Ethiopian, said: “Ethiopian is proud to be there when the world needed it most – repatriating citizens, re-uniting families, facilitating essential travel and transporting much needed medical and personal protective equipment (PPE) for health professionals and the general public under very difficult and challenging circumstances. We are proud to be an integral part of the fight against COVID-19. Now we want to play a leading role in the new-normal. To a very large extent, it’s about getting back the confidence of business and leisure travelers. With the protective measures we are taking in line with CDC, IATA, ICAO and WHO guidelines, customers and staff can rest assured that their safety and health are well looked after when flying with us”.


Customers are advised to check travel restrictions of destination countries prior to arriving at the airport for a flight. Facemasks will be mandatory for travel. Except children under the age 2, all customers must keep their masks on throughout their journey.


Ethiopian said all customer-facing staff will wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs). This includes ticket offices, airport and lounge staff, as well as cabin crew. Onboard service is redesigned to minimize contact while maintaining our African flavored Ethiopian hospitality. Items, such as magazines, menus and other reading materials that were traditionally shared will no longer be available.


As countries continue to open their borders and relax travel restrictions, Ethiopian is ready to increase frequencies to accommodate the demand by focusing on the well-being of customers and staff. Ethiopian is happy to welcome back business and leisure travellers.
