One of the last surviving pieces of Trans World Airlines (it was once run by TWA), the African airline has survived Civil War, famine and economic crisis.
But how could anything so great and so cool survive so long?
The question should how could it not, with its founding by Emperor Haile Selassie, symbolism of the Lion of Judah painted by its cockpit and all of this coupled with the jet-set glamour of Howard Hughes’ TWA and the airline’s usefulness as an economic development engine in an impoverished part of the world.
Ethiopian Airlines is a beacon of hope in Africa, proof that locally run high tech businesses can run anywhere.
Fly Ethiopian Airlines.
