Last week, Ethiopian Airlines celebrated the graduation of over 1,500 new aviation staff across seven different countries.

African aviation continues to grow at tremendous levels, and thus new staff members will be needed to facilitate this growth.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

The graduates consist of the following within the Ethiopian Airlines Aviation University:

  • Pilot Training
  • Aviation Maintenance
  • Commercial
  • Cabin Crew
  • Hotel Operation

Commenting on this milestone was the Group CEO Mesfin Tasew:

“Human capital development is one of the key pillars in Ethiopian Airlines’ growth strategic road map, and today’s graduation is a testimony of our commitment to ensure that we invest a lot in our aviation brainery.”

“As part of our continental commitment, we will continue to provide Africa with skilled aviation professionals.”

“We are delighted to see today youths from seven African countries completing one chapter and opening another in their aviation endeavor.”

“We believe in the potential of Africa’s youths to shape the continent’s aviation and continue to educate them at our center of excellence. Today the industry welcomes 660 male and 891 female graduates.”

What remains clear is that this milestone will be the first of many from the aviation university, and the high number of graduates reflects the overall need for staffing to facilitate future growth.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on Ethiopian Airlines to see how the rest of its progress with the aviation university goes and how many more graduates will be produced as a result of this.
