Ethiopian Group CEO Tewolde GebreMariam said: “We are glad to have won the ‘Overall Excellence for Outstanding Crisis Leadership 2020 Award’ which recognises our distinct capabilities of successful management of multiple crises taking place simultaneously like a perfect storm. During the global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic which resulted in panic, fear and hopelessness in the industry; we have demonstrated resilience, agility and speed of decision making and special competency in fast redeployment of organizational resources to our Cargo division to airlift life-saving COVID-19 PPE and medical supplies. We have reconfigured 25 passenger airplanes for cargo only flights and we also availed the remaining passenger airplanes for repatriation of stranded people to connect with their loved ones back home. As a socially responsible airline, we stood in solidarity with the world during the unprecedented crisis and served communities around the globe to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic challenges.  We are ready to repeat the remarkable and globally recognised success in leading the fast delivery of life-saving PPE’s with similar delivery speed and professional handling during the forthcoming global distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine.”
