Emirates Awards Top Ethiopian Travel Agents

Emirates, the largest airline in the Middle East based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, gave out awards last week to Ethiopian agents for their outstanding contribution to the growth of the Airlines.

As a business partner of the Airlines, Abba Travel PLC received a platinum award while Best Travels, Network PVT Co and All Tours Opera received gold, silver and bronze awards.

“Since the start of our Ethiopia operations in March 2006, the travel agent community has assisted us tremendously,” said Abdalla Al Zamani, Emirates Country Manager for Ethiopia.

Certificates were also awarded to Four Winds Travel, Galaxy Express, Mugad Travel, Safeway Travel and Airlink Travel. In the business support category, Ethio Gulf Trading received a gold award while Al-Sabri Travel, E.A. Tour & Travel and Batti received certificates.

Emirates began operations in Ethiopia in March 27, 2006, with three weekly flights linked to the Ugandan operation. The operation is also delinked from Uganda in March 2012, as demand increased. With a fleet of nearly 200 fuel efficient aircraft, the Airline flies to 132 destinations.
