Meseret Tekalign 9Ethiopian Airlines Country Manager) and her team, Ashmika Sukhdeo and Lorcan Keegan hosted an event in the Clayton Hotel Dublin Airport, to mark Ethiopian New Year, also known as Enkutatash.

 

For Ethiopians around the world the New Year signifies an end to the rainy season, plentiful harvests and a countryside covered with bright yellow flowers. To the delight of guests attending, Mrs Tekalign shared that as Ethiopia uses the Julian calendar, which is 7 years behind the more familiar Gregorian calendar, everyone in the room became instantly younger. Good news as that means Don Shearer is now 40!

 

Before inviting guests to enjoy the traditional Ethiopian food, wine from Ethiopia’s Rift Valley and witness a typical Ethiopian coffee ceremony, Mrs Tekalign said “As Ethiopian airlines continues to grow, it is the hard work and commitment of all those in Ethiopian that has made us the largest and most profitable airline in Africa with awards including a 4-star grading from SKYTRAX, TripAdvisor’s award of ‘Best Business Class in Africa and Indian Ocean’ and SKYTRAX ‘Best Airline in Africa,’ ‘Best Business Class in Africa’ and ‘Best Economy Class in Africa.’ It’s a good way to start a new year and we are delighted you are here to share it with us.”
