Jacinta McGlynn (Senior Travelbiz Reporter) takes a glance back with Ethiopian Airlines who sponsored the group to Addis Ababa in March 2019 to celebrate International Women’s Day with an ALL WOMEN flight operating from Addis (with ground staff, flight crew, cleaners, caterers et al) to Scandinavia.

 

Our base in Addis Ababa is Ethiopian Airlines 5* Skylight Hotel serving Bole Airport, a super comfortable, brand new hotel. We’re whisked off for an exclusive tour of the new airport facility where there are 4.000 presently in the Training Academy.

 

The operation is very slick with flight simulators, swimming pool (all flight crew must be proficient swimmers in case of emergency landing in water), classrooms for in-flight crew and vast hangars housing a huge network of airlines from all over the African continent.

 

Our African Queens (sorry, I mean the AWTE members!) are highly impressed. A traditional evening of song and dance has local bands, dazzling dancers and super singers take to the stage to entertain us. Charming personalities and warm hospitality – ‘Riverdance’, Ethiopian style! A must-see on any trip to Addis is a sunrise balloon ride over the city. Compelling and spectacular. Up, up and away with Abyssinia Ballooning. An unforgettable experience. Ladies like to shop so we hit the markets later – check in tomorrow as we may just grab some colourful souvenirs. This is Africa after all.
