Ethiopian Airlines has signed an Agreement with Guinea Airlines, for strategic partnership in management, maintenance and training.

Ethiopian Group CEO Tewolde GebreMariam,  Cheick Dem, from Guinea Airlines and Guinea’s Minister for Transport,  Oyé Guilavogui signed the agreement in the presence the Minister and Strategic Adviser to the President, Ansoumane Condé, the Ambassador of Guinea in Addis Ababa, Ms. Sidibé Fatoumata Kaba, the Director General Guinea Civil Aviation, Mamady Kaba, and Ethiopian Executive Management members.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Tewolde said: “As part of our Vision 2025 and with a view to enable African airlines to regain market share for travel, to from and within the continent, we are establishing strategic partnerships with many African countries. This partnership is in line with the recently launched African Single Air Transport Market at the African Union Heads of State Summit in Addis Ababa.

We are partnering with Guinea Airlines and other African countries because we have the capacity and the expertise to support our African brothers and sisters in the aviation sector. I appreciate the speed with which we reached an agreement with Guinea Airlines thanks to the support of President Alpha Condé.

This is a trilateral partnership with Guinea, ASKY Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines with a view to fill the air connectivity vacuum in domestic Guinea market and between the Mano River countries. The time has come for Africans to join hands as one and reclaim our rightful place in the global aviation industry.” 

Oyé Guilavogui, the Guinean Minister for Transport, who co-signed the agreement, said: "I thank the entire delegation that accompanied me for the realisation of this partnership. I am very happy with the Ethiopian side who deployed a lot of efforts for the signing of this agreement. We hope that by the end of June, our aircraft will start flying to Conakry, neighboring countries as well as regional capitals.”
