Ethiopian wins gold award for cargo volume

Ethiopian Airlines Group CEO, Mr. Tewolde GebreMariam said: “We are grateful to Logistics of Guangdong Airport Authority Co. Ltd. for honoring us with this special award in recognition of our efforts.

“China is one of the top cargo origins and Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport is among the main international aviation hubs in the Greater Bay Area.

“We have worked very hard to provide efficient cargo service between China and the rest of the world during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The award is a recognition of this effort and it will inspire us to enhance our services to the greater bay area to meet the growing customer demand for airfreight.’’

Last year, Ethiopian demonstrated impressive performance at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport by operating 1622 flights out of which 966 were with freighter, 572 were with Preighter (passenger aircraft converted to cargo), and 84 flights were with belly hold on passenger aircraft.

Ethiopian will increase its frequency to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport to 14 freighters and 21 preighters per week soon.
