Ethiopian Airlines Cargo celebrates 10 years of happy landings at Liege Airport
Nov 28, 2018: Liege Airport and Ethiopian Airlines Cargo and Logistics Services recently celebrated 10 years of cooperation at the 2nd Africa Aviation summit held in Nairobi, hosted by long term partners NAM, Astral Aviation and Liege Airport.
The next event, 2020, will be held in Addis, Ethiopia, and will be hosted by Ethiopian Airlines Cargo and Logistics and Liege Airport.
Fitsum Abady, general manager Ethiopian Airlines Cargo and Logistics, said the choice for Liege in 2008 proved to be the best choice for the freight carrier. He said, “ET Cargo has been growing quickly, with a freighter fleet that evolved from 2 leased MD11 to an impressive fleet of 8 brand new B777 freighters with more to come. Liege Airport managed to accommodate the growth and supported ET Cargo all the way.”
Abady for his part, is also an ambassador for Liege Airport. He said he is convinced there will be many more happy landings, and challenged the airport to keep managing the growth of long term partners.
Liege Airport has invested in additional warehouse space, in new systems and in Cloud based cargo community systems, in order to support the growth in traffic for precious flowers and perishables as for all other commodities.
ET Cargo was at the forefront of launching Liege Airport Cargo North as the gateway for flowers and perishables.
