Posted 17 March 2017 · Add Comment

Ethiopian Airlines is marking St. Patrick's Day (today) with a green livery on its A350 aircraft.

 

As part of the "Greenification of the World" campaign, launched by the Irish Tourism Board eight years ago, Africa’s first Ethiopian A350 is joining a string of world landmarks in this campaign, including:  New York’s World Trade Center, City Hall and Heron Tower in London, Plaça de Catalunya and the fountains on Gran Via in Barcelona, Pozzo di San Patrizio in Italy, Matsue Castle in Japan and the Diamond Bridge in South Korea.

Ethiopian Group CEO Tewolde GebreMariam said: “We are proud to join the world global landmarks for St. Patrick’s Day greening Africa’s first A350 XWB; our latest and game changing flying machine. The A350 is among the notable landmarks in Ethiopian 70-year history, with which Ethiopian has pioneered the extra effect to the African continent. Moreover, this collaboration is a continuation of the long standing social, cultural and economic collaboration between Ethiopia and the People of Ireland. I wish all a happy festivity.”
