We are pleased to announce that ACC Aviation has been appointed as the exclusive agent for Ethiopian Airlines’ charter and leasing capacity in Europe.
Operating one of the world’s youngest fleets, at an average age of just five years, the multi-award winning national flag carrier recently took delivery of its 100th aircraft, becoming the first airline in Africa’s history to operate a fleet of its size.
The agreement encompasses an Airbus A350, as well as Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 Dreamliners, based at London Heathrow, Madrid, Barcelona, Oslo, Geneva, Frankfurt, Brussels, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Milan Malpensa and Rome Fiumicino. From November 2018, Ethiopian will also have capacity available from Manchester.
ACC’s Director of Charter, Richard Smith, commented: “The working relationship between ACC Aviation and Ethiopian has gone from strength to strength over the past year and this agreement signifies the close nature of our partnership.
“We are delighted to have been selected to represent Ethiopian’s interests in Europe and I am in no doubt that this collaboration will prove highly beneficial as we continue to identify suitable charter and leasing opportunities for Ethiopian’s modern fleet in the European market,” Smith said.
Ethiopian Airlines’ Chief Commercial Officer, Mr Busera Awel, commented: “While Ethiopian has long years of experience in leasing and charter operations across the globe with customers and partners worldwide, this partnership with ACC Aviation will create the opportunity to significantly expand our service offering within Europe and beyond.
“Moreover, we are very excited to have the opportunity to demonstrate our team’s efficiency in the areas of customer service, dispatch reliability and safety,” Mr Awel said.Back to News
