Ethiopian Airlines Dublin invited trade and media guests to celebrate Enkutatash which is New Year in Ethiopia. The celebration is called Enkutatash meaning ‘gift of jewels’ and it goes back to the time of the Queen of Sheba when she gifted Solomon with spices and jewels.  All guests left seven years younger in one night as Ethiopia uses the Coptic calendar, which consists of 13 months, plus as it is 7 years behind the Gregorian calendar you become instantly younger! Tony Flynn (Sales Manager Ethiopian Airlines ROI & NI) welcomed guests highlighting the great work done my Michael Yohannes and the Ethiopian Airlines team along with welcoming Meseret Tekalign to her new role in Dublin as Area Manager Ireland ROI and NI.

 

Tony also highlighted the fact that Ethiopia is lauded by both Lonely Planet and Rough Guide and a country you cannot afford to miss, all of which is highlighted in products and offers with Ethiopian Holidays.  Dominic Burke (MD Travel Centres) with first-hand experience of the product in the air and on the ground thanked all the Ethiopian representatives for their support for the trade in Ireland.  Travelbiz wishes  Michael and his family all the very best in their move to London and continued success in his new role with Ethiopian heading up the London Operation.
