The handling in one week of a dozen flights with some 24 legs for a mix of customers including medevac, government, investment, humanitarian, crew rotation and repatriation flights firmly demonstrates the rounded capabilities of this now established company.

 

Building on the first five years of success Dawit Lemma, founder and CEO, is now looking to further enhance the business aviation offering in Ethiopia. “My team is at the forefront of East African aviation and works continuously to meet and exceed customer expectations. I am extremely proud of the accomplishments we’ve achieved,” says Lemma. “For the next five years our aim is to support the improvement of infrastructure at Addis Ababa Bole airport, and we plan to advocate for, and get involved in, development of a first rate FBO and MRO facility at the airport. As home to the African Union and hosts to an increasing number of international investors and tourists we are perfectly positioned to maximise the opportunities presented by business aviation in the region. Despite the pandemic we can see great potential as we head towards our next five years.”

 

Initially focused on Ethiopia the business now operates in ten African countries including South Sudan, Djibouti, and Democratic Republic of Congo. In 2018 it was granted one of only five Ethiopian CAA aviation licenses confirming the company’s ability to offer consistent services to international standards and Lemma continues to be a shaping force for African business aviation. Prior to the advent of COVID-19 Krimson had become such experts at handling medevacs that Lemma and his team collaborated with local regulators to modify protocols to streamline the delicate process, which during the height of the pandemic became invaluable as Addis Ababa became a hub for medevac and repatriation flights.
