ADDIS ABABA — Ethiopian Airlines is dispatching its first-ever flight operated by an all-female crew. The
flight was scheduled to depart for Bangkok, Thailand, Wednesday night. The airline says it wants to promote women’s empowerment and encourage more African girls to pursue aviation careers.
Ethiopian Airlines CEO Tewolde Gebremariam said attracting more women to aviation jobs is one of the
reasons for hosting the female flight, together with empowering women.
“It’s going to be very inspiring for all the women allover the world, aviation women and particularly the African woman. Because, as you know, here in
the continent of Africa, we are lagging behind in women empowerment. So this is going to inspire all the school girls in Africa that they have a very
bright future in the 21st century,” Gebremariam said.
The flight is being handled by women in every aspect – from planning, to aircraft maintenance, and from the pilots to air traffic controllers. Even
upon arrival in Bangkok, all customs and immigration officers will be female. Ethiopian Airlines says about one third of its employees are women. But the number is smaller when it comes to positions such as pilots and
technicians. Ethiopian Airlines female crew members.
Twenty-two-year-old Haymanot Endale is a cabin maintenance technician and has been working at
Ethiopian Airlines for two years. She said even though there are many girls working as flight attendants, as a technician she mostly works with men.
“I think that outside of the Ethiopian Airlines, girls think that the work is very difficult, so they did enter [come work for] this company. But we enter
and we see that it is very easy,” Endale said.
Many Ethiopian women known for their success in business and politics attended the event, including
Ethiopia’s first lady Roman Tesfaye.
Ethiopian Airlines is Africa’s most profitable airline.
